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!
