In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the Chinese American Association of Lexington (CAAL) has been collecting donations for COVID-19 relief since January 2020. Through unprecedented and generous support from our friends and families, CAAL has undertaken a massive PPE relief operation. As we continue to face the ongoing challenges of the pandemic in light of the situation in Lexington, CAAL is introducing the following actions and initiatives in our continuous support for COVID-19 relief and to work together with local organizations that play critical roles in Lexington.
CAAL’s Community Building Award Program. Lexington Interfaith Food Pantry is this year’s recipient of CAAL’s Community Building Award. CAAL launched the award program in 2018 to help support local organizations that are engaged in serving the Lexington community. Past recipients include METCO College Scholarship Fund of Lexington, Cary Memorial Library Foundation, and Lexington Symphony. CAAL is donating $5,000 to support the vital operation of Lexington Interfaith Food Pantry during COVID-19.
