On May 30 to June 1, 2020, several small businesses in Manhattan's Chinatown were vandalized and looted during recent protest-related events. Glass doors and windows were smashed, and tens of thousands of dollars of store merchandise/inventory was stolen.
All funds raised will go towards the replacement of damaged glass doors and windows of the affected small businesses only (no large institutions, ie. banks) that do not have insurance coverage. Any remainder funds will go towards assisting with the repair of interior damages.
Chinatown Partnership is 501(c)(3) organization. Contributions are tax-deductible to the extent by law.

- 179 Grand Street Mall, 179 Grand St
