DDMBA Chicago donates Masks to neighboring organizations
In an effort to support our community, DDMBA Chicago is participating in a larger effort by the Chan Center of New York to address the current shortage of protective masks and medical equipment. The DDMBA COVID – 19 USA Relief Project imports these critical items through trusted channels from China and distributes them to nursing homes, hospitals, and local governments in need of Personal Protective Equipment. Overall, funds raised have enabled the purchase of 100,000 masks and our Chicago DDMBA Chapter has donated 6,000 masks to local organizations. We thank the brave Bodhisattvas that are on the front lines of this Pandemic.
Local donations include:
- The Brookdale Assisted Living Facility in Prospect Heights (2000 masks). See the delivery report for details.
- The Landing on Dundee Senior Living in Wheeling (2000 masks). Delivery report
- Xilin Association Community Centers (2000 masks). Delivery report
- Advocate Sherman Hospital in Elgin IL. Delivery report in progress.
