Subject: [FW]Report from KYCAA ( 肯塔基华人协会)
This Saturday morning, May 31, 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM, the Kentucky Chinese American Association (KYCAA) will hold a send-off event at the Lexington Chinese Christian Church (LCCC) for urgently needed items that are being collected, including household water purifiers, medical gloves, sleeping bags, comforters, tents, etc., for earthquake victims in Sichuan, China. This event is co-sponsored by LCCC, the Lexington Chinese School (LCS) and UK Chinese Students and Scholars Association (UK-CSSA). Please see attached flyer for more details.
Besides packing the supplies, we STRONGLY encourage anyone who cares to write their own loving words and blessings, or even simple drawings, and pack them into the packages, in order to show our support to the victims, to the rescuers, and to the volunteers. Our theme is to let those who suffered know that people in a small Midwestern American city care.
If weather ! is good, the event will be in the LCCC parking lot. If it rains (or snows), the Fellowship Hall will be the location.
We will be selling the T-shirt with the Association logo (and the old Association name) on spot for $5.00 apiece, with all proceeds going to the disaster relief fund.
Through the courtesy of Culmei Productions, a PSA video of calling for donations/help has been produced and posted on YouTube:
