HANOVER TOWNSHIP — Hanover Chinese-American Community was out donating supplies to local organizations. The organizing team on behalf on Chinese-American residents in Hanover includes Nancy Yang, Ellen Xia, Hongli Li, Lihua Zheng, Meng Xu, and Annie Ma.
Our first wave of donations, we sent:
300 Face Masks to Office of Emergency Management
5,000 Face Masks to Atlantic Health
100 to CVS Pharmacy
For our second wave of donations, we sent:
300 KN95s Office of Emergency Management
200 Surgical Masks & 300 Face Masks (500 total) to St Clare’s Denville
300 KN95s to Morristown Medical Center Emergency Room
200 KN95s to St Joseph Wayne Emergency Room
250 Face Masks to Seniors and Group Homes
200 Face Masks to CareOne Whippany
100+ Face Masks to Local Physicians and Nurses who contacted us privately
21 Tyvek Protective Covers to CK Fire & First Aid Squad
Lysol & Disinfectant to Pediatric Orthopedic at 218 Ridgedale Ave
Lysol & Disinfectant to YMCA Livingston for Essential Worker Childcare
Over 7,000 PPEs (including medical grade KN-95s) have been distributed to date. These shipments come from overseas. They continue to work with Township Officials and community to determine the most vulnerable population and first responders.
You’ll notice that each and every place that received a donation is local and relevant to Hanover specifically. Almost every place they dropped off at, they recognized a Hanover resident or WPHS alumni. They were really touched to see our own neighbors working the frontlines in Covid-19 response. In every donation, we continue include a note of support from the heart: “United We Stand Against covid-19”
Our strategy will now change in the coming week, as CDC guidelines for face coverings have changed.
