***What are we raising funds for***
Your donation will 100% go to support our Chinatown and nearby local restaurants to prepare food for whoever in needed. We will continue to support our restaurants friends and the community as long as we still get donations so we hope everyone can help us keep this going.
Chinatown NY was impacted by the pandemic since Jan 2020, much earlier than other parts of the city. Most of the restaurants in Chinatown experienced 50-60% or maybe even more in sales since Jan and by now most of us are closed but still struggling to pay rents, payrolls and other business expenses. Some restaurants might close their doors for good and that is the last thing we wish to see.
We are asking for your kindness to donate so we can partner up with local restaurants friends to feed our community, for those that are in need with meals (low income families, seniors, and veterans), we will also donate foods and beverages to our heroes doctors and nurses who are fighting hard for so many patients lives.
***Who are we and why we are doing this***
We are Frank and Kelly, owners of Yifang Taiwan Fruit Tea locates in Chinatown. We opened our small bubble tea shop door on June 14, 2019 and this community has been nothing but so kind and supportive to us.
We were not born nor raised in NY but because of the people in Chinatown, we have called this place home so we want to do a small thank you to give back to our local restaurants friends, our customers now that cannot afford to buy food, our doctors and nurses who are working tirelessly every single moments to keep everyone healthy.
Daily update of fundraising will be update on our IG: yifang.chinatownnyc and donation update will be posted on IG and gofundme. For inquiry about partnering up (local restaurants, bakeries, beverages shops) or sign up to receive donations (hospitals, shelters, non-profit organizations) please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your kindness. Stay safe and stay healthy :)
