Welcome to Chinatown

Welcome to Chinatown is organizing this fundraiser to say THANK YOU to the essential workers keeping the greatest city in the world running. Donations will be used to purchase and deliver meals from New York City Chinatown restaurants to essential workers. Help Chinatown help our heroes! 

Daily deliveries began the week of April 6th and will continue as long as we have the money to fund this while NYC PAUSE is in effect.  Please consider visiting our page on a weekly basis and making this a recurring donation. 100% of all proceeds will go towards purchasing meals.

To stay updated on the progress of our deliveries, follow us on Instagram at @welcome.tochinatown or subscribe to our newsletter at www.welcometochinatown.com

If you have a message of positivity and gratitude you would like us to pass along, please write in the comments of your donation and we will include it with that week's delivery.

We're here to help say Chinatown will always be open for business.
