COMMUNITY MASK PROJECT

 

To better gain the responses and impact of the relief efforts, VACAT have worked at national level with other Vietnamese American communities and locally within our community.  At the national level, VACAT partnered with other Texas communities and together we donated $6000 from the "Texas Disaster Relief Fund" toThe Vietnamese American Community of the USA. This joint Texas Disaster Relief Fund consisted of relief funds collected from five Vietnamese American communities in Texas: Cong Dong Dallas, Vietnamese Community of Houston and Vicinities - VNCH, Vietnamese American Community at Tarrant County and Vicinity, San Antonio, and Austin. Thank you Texas VAC Disater Relief org for your donation of $2000 and VACUSA for your donation of 400 face shields toward our local relief project. Locally VACAT COVID-19 Relief project (partnered with Austin Vietnamese American Medical Professional Society-AVAMPS ) has been able to provide 22,500 GLOVES, 56 gallons of HAND SANITIZER, 62 gallons of ALCOHOL, more than 7,000 MASKS to the medical community/essential workers in need.   We are beyond thankful to everyone’s continuous generosity, support and partnership in VACAT's COVID-19 project.

COMMUNITY DRIVE-THROUGH MASK GIVEAWAY
Thursday May 21, starting @11 am.
This community mask giveaway (4000 masks) and all our other PPE/masks distributions, were funded and made possible by our COVID-19 Relief Project - donated by the communities and lead by a joint effort from VACAT & AVAMPs.
 
We are all tremendously grateful and humbled for the overwhelming support from the community. We asked and you responded. From donations of the time/talent of sewing masks to charitable supplies and financial donations, your generosity has helped make a difference during these times. Coordinating the process of sourcing, making and distributing of PPE/masks is not an easy task even in normal circumstances - and social distancing made it even more difficult - but we did it. Thank you our donors, supporters, volunteers, #FrontlineHeroes, the entire team and everyone involved in this heroic effort in caring for our community. You have gone above and beyond for us. THANK YOU!
