Call for Donation to Fight Covid-19 in the Greater Rochester Region

March 21, 2020

Dear friends,
With the on-going outbreak of Covid-19, there is a high demand and consequently, an extreme shortage for Personal Protective Equipments (PPEs, face masks, N95 respirators, safety goggles, and coveralls etc.) for our health care workers in the local community. When they are working to protect us, we should all be working to protect them against the potential exposure to this deadly virus.

As the center hub of the Rochester Chinese American Community, we had helped to collect and donate 17,650 surgical masks and 135 N95 respirator masks to URMC On March 19, 2020.


The Chinese School of Rochester, part of the United Way of the Greater Rochester Area, is calling for donations to help purchase PPEs for our health care workers from overseas. We have also procured 3000 N95 face masks and it is on the way to the US and will soon be distributed to the hospitals and health centers in Rochester. Your donation is needed to help us cover the cost and shipping fees to get more supplies. 

We will keep you posted on the use of donation funds, medical supply purchase and shipment information. We will also provide receipts for your tax-deductible donation. 
We thank you in advance for your generosity!
