United, We Are Strong! St Louis

Since first taking over the heartland of China, COVID-19 has been spreading all over the world, especially in Europe and Asia. Now many states and cities are witnessing a sudden surge of cases. New York, California, and Washington are the early areas to feel the heavy burden of the pandemic, draining resources in the healthcare system. In Missouri, the total number of cases remains relatively low, but there is an urgent need to prepare for the worst, especially given the known shortage of medical supplies needed to fight COVID-19.

Hospitals around the nation have issued calls for the public’s help, including for instance calls for monetary donations as well as PPEs (personal protective equipment) and supplies such as facial masks. Our St. Louis Chinese American community have a long tradition of responding to calls for help whenever we can. Let us stay united in this global fight against COVID-19; this time, we focus our attention towards delivering the needed protection to our own very best heroes in St. Louis, including doctors, nurses, police, emergency responders, volunteers and many others who are protecting our community in the frontline. Protecting them is the best way to protect ourselves!

United we can stand strong with our community! United we can heal our community and bring back normalcy!

自年初起新冠肺炎袭击了中华大地,并以极快的速度在世界蔓延开来,欧亚大陆相继沦陷。 最近在美国也开始迅速的传播起来。纽约、加州、华盛顿州也陷入困境和危机,医疗状况不堪重负。密苏里现在虽然感染人数比较低,但是医疗资源非常缺乏,一旦大规模疫情发生时,社区大众, 尤其是医护人员的安全令人堪忧。





具体流程如下(About Our Process):

募资:由各个负责人通过多地多渠道进行募资行动,最后由圣路易现代中文学校统一收集并购买相应医用防护用品捐赠给需要的防疫第一线机构。欢迎大家一起加入。欢迎朋友们群策群力,如有意入群或出谋划策,请与您熟悉的负责人联系。 Donations are now being collected online through a variety of outreach efforts, including other area community organizations, local Chinese news organizations, and social media platform. The Chinese Education and Culture Center in St Louis will collect and purchase the donation items and pass on needed organizations and individuals.

Q & A

Q: Is the fundraiser campaign looking for both monetary donations and donations of needed items?
A: At this point we are primarily collecting monetary donations. However, if PPEs or other needed medical supplies are available, with verifiable documentation for use in COVID-19 care, we will consider those too. Our goal is simple—to provide needed supplies and equipment to the frontline agencies/individuals in the most efficient manner.

Q: Who are we donating to? Are they organizations we could trust?
A: Currently our priorities are those working in hospitals and senior centers, police and fire fighters, as well as anyone else for whom social distancing may not be an option. Our committee commits to spending every donation dollar to providing protective gear or any other needed assistance for COVID-19 relief in St. Louis. We will provide regular updates for both donations collected and items donated.

Q: How long will the campaign last?
A: This will ultimately depend on COVID-19's development in the region. We can expect the fight against this virus to be a drawn-out one as well. We plan to end Phase One of the campaign at noon, April 5th. At that point we will reevaluate the needs and determine the next steps.

Q: How can the public monitor and follow up with the campaign?
A: This is a campaign run by volunteers in the St. Louis Chinese American community. As we receive the first and each following donation, we the volunteer team are committed to diligently safeguarding the integrity of the donation process. We will provide weekly, and if needed, daily updates through our local media and online platforms. You can also monitor the amount donated on our website

Q: Are the donations tax-deductible?
A. St. Louis Modern Chinese School is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and your donation is tax deductible. We will provide the needed documentation to all individuals or organizations.

Q: Our company matches donations to St. Louis Modern Chinese school, but the money can't be transferred to you right away. Is that OK?
A: No problem.

Please stay tuned for updates and thank you for your support!!
