NEW YORK, May 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- China General Chamber of Commerce – U.S.A. (CGCC) and CGCC Foundation, together with its regional chapters and member companies, have donated 2,567,444 pieces of personal protective equipment (PPE) to more than 40 hospitals and clinics, and 19 government agencies in 20 states across the U.S., as of April 29th, 2020.
CGCC is the largest non-profit organization representing Chinese enterprises in America, with a mission of "Connecting People, Building Trust and Expanding Cooperation". Its U.S. Medical Supply Donation and Information Sharing Effort started on March 12th. CGCC and its member companies reacted early and decisively in supporting America's fight against the pandemic. Their unique resources and expertise also helped them source PPEs from foreign manufactures at a time when global supply and shipping options were very limited.
"We are very proud of our achievements so far," said CGCC Vice-Chairman, and China Telecom (Americas) President, Mr. Xu Tan. "But more importantly, these healthcare workers and emergency responders deserve our deepest appreciation and admiration. The Chinese business community is committed to support local communities across America because we are all in this fight together!"
