Call for Donations to Purchase Masks, Protective Clothing and Other Anti-epidemic Materials for Medical Professionals, at Risk Groups, and Vulnerable Groups in Carolinas to Fight Against Coronavirus
Dear CCCC members:
With the rapid development of the novel coronavirus (COVID 19) outbreak in the United States, the fight against the outbreak has become a top priority for us. The Carolina Chinese Chamber of Commerce (CCCC) and Carolina Chinese American Civic Center (CCACC) will work with Chinese American community organizations in North and South Carolinas to encourage and accept donations to purchase masks, protective clothing and other anti-epidemic materials.
The materials purchased with fund raised will be donated to: 1) medical professionals at the forefront of the battle against the pandemic; 2) high-risk groups (e.g. staffers at airports and clinics, elderly community caregivers, restaurant and supermarket employees, etc.); and 3) vulnerable groups such as the elderly, weak and sick. In addition, we will also open a relief fund to support local families that have been negatively impacted the most by the pandemic.
We have contacted the manufacturers of FDA-certified N95 1860 medical masks, surgical masks, and medical protective clothing and have started placing orders.
In addition, we will also provide face masks at affordable prices for our members, institutional members and other related organizations.
During this extraordinary and challenging time, let’s give back to the community, support each other, and work together to overcome the difficulties.
Details on how to donate are as follows:

The CCCC Fundrasing Golf Event was successfully held on May 6th at the Creamer Mountain Club in Charlotte. More than ten teams consisting of high-ball players from the South and North Cards competed in the same game, playing in the form of a four-person team of Captain’s Choice. In the 2017 and 2018 two years, the United States under the age of 13 women's world champion (US Kids Golf Girls 13) Cindy Song led the Merrill Lynch team, with a net score of 52 (-20) to win the championship. The Asian and third runners were won by Green Meadow and Look China, respectively, and both teams had net shots below 60. For details, see the below report:
南北卡华人工商总会2019年度高尔夫义捐赛于5月6日在夏洛特Creamer Mountain 俱乐部成功举行。由来自南、北卡各路高球高手组成的十余支球队同场竞技，以四人一队Captain’s Choice的形式进行比赛。蝉联2017和2018两年全美13岁以下女子世界冠军（US Kids Golf Girls 13）宋欣仪（Cindy Song）领衔的美林木业队，以净杆52（-20）的优异成绩获得冠军。亚、季军分别由Green Meadow 和Look China️队夺得，两队的净杆数都在60以下。
本次义捐赛是商会引领华人社团回报美国当地社区的又一次有益探索。去年5月21日，商会以同样的形式为阿雷格尔儿童残疾人基金筹集善款万元。 本次义捐赛的受益方为北卡知名绿色资源保护组织卡罗莱纳丝路（Carolina Thread Trail）。
本次义捐赛得到北卡华人企业家的大力赞助。美林木业（Michael Wang/Jimmy Lee)、Green Tech Solution(Richard Yang)、Golden Green Hotel(Si Chen)、阳光保险(Wendy Shao)等都慷慨赞助。會長王晴介紹说，商会的核心价值之一是积极回饋當地社區，通过举办类似的公益活动，为当地社区服务。
Mr. Cui Tiankai, Chinese Ambassador to the United States, attended the ceremony with his wife. He fully acknowledged the important contributions made by the overseas Chinese in promoting the development of Sino-US relations. He said that the Chinese government will continue to work on some unstable factors in the development of international relations and work to promote the healthy, stable and sustainable development of Sino-US relations from the fundamental interests of the people of China and the United States.
During the meeting, President Wang Qing of CCCC exchanged views with Consul General Tang Li of the Chinese Embassy and Deputy Consul General Li Min, and exchanged views on the preliminary intention of the city of Raleigh, North Carolina to form a friendly and cooperative city with Hangzhou, Zhejiang.
Hundreds of representatives from overseas Chinese organizations, entrepreneurs and scholars from the US and China attended the reception.
