【九月寄语】九月的初秋悄然而至，一树一树的红叶点缀着小镇的每一个角落。操场上，戴着口罩的孩子们在踢球奔跑追逐；镇中心的街道上，路边的栏杆装饰着居民参与的“Lexington Art Walk”画作，五彩纷呈，集世界多元文化精髓，拉近了人们六尺隔离生活的距离；居民参与，社区意识，通过艺术服务社区淋漓呈现。民兵雕像前，华协成员用真心和爱唱响了《相信爱》这一首表达关心社区，积极参与及支持社区的爱之歌。莱镇双月刊报“Colonial Times”九/十月刊以五版的篇幅报道了莱镇华协(CAAL)援助社区抗疫的事迹。秋日暖阳流连，带着光阴的美好，疫情下的生活依然处处充满着爱。点击阅读
Because of your generosity and community spirit, the Chinese American Association of Lexington (CAAL) has been able to support our Lexington community and frontline healthcare and essential workers during the global pandemic. Our intent is to recognize the unprecedented contributions of over 1,150 donors and volunteers, and 55 organizations, although the lists here by no means are complete.
With your generous donations and volunteering, CAAL has raised $258,025 in total. Together with the PPE donations from our community, these funds enabled us to source and donate 215,219 PPEs (includes N95 respirators, surgical masks, protective goggles, protective suits, face shields) to 61 hospitals, 42 nursing homes, 26 town departments, 7 local organizations and 11 businesses from Lexington to other communities in Massachusetts and beyond. We were also able to help the hospitals in Wuhan in February. In addition, CAAL COVID-relief funds granted total $16,500 to 10 non-profit organizations in Lexington. We also delivered $1,740 hot meals to frontline and essential workers of LPD, LFD, DPW, LPS, and Post Office.
You are our heroes!
We are forever grateful to your generosity and support. Together we shall overcome!
