WAC Lighting and Glow Community Center donate masks to “North Hempstead Drive-in Movie”s event series.

WAC Lighting and Glow Community Center donate masks to “North Hempstead Drive-in Movie”s event series.

With the launch of the Summer drive-in Movies series in North Hempstead, drive-in movies featuring movies such as “The Goonies,” the 1985 adventure-comedy, kicks off on May 23rd 8pm at North Hempstead Beach Park, Port Washington.

About 500 local residents signed up and expected to drive-in and they will be the first to experience the series. And the following show will be hosted on Sunday night 8pm. The events open for registrations are now sold out but speaking to Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth’s office, updates are coming this week about upcoming screenings. To make a reservation, visit NorthHempsteadNY.gov/drive-in

“This program is fun, family-friendly, and, most importantly, in-line with the social-distancing guidelines we have all been following over the last two months…” Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth said in a statement.

To help keep local residents, and front line service workers facilitating the event safe, Glow Community Center Covid-19 Relief Fund, WAC Lighting, and friends through great efforts donated 20,000 protective masks to the event series.

WAC Lighting and Glow Community Center founder Tai and Tony Wang and board member Jerry Lo have been coordinating efforts for the deliveries of PPE and other items to frontline essential workers in NYC and Long Island since the start of the pandemic. Working with our network of generous supporters and volunteers, WAC lighting and Glow Community Center were able to collect close to $20,000 worth of donated supplies, such as N95 masks, protective suits, boxes of gloves, protective masks, face shields, goggles and thermometers and raised close to $40,000 in funds.


Special Thanks to our long term supporters such as WAC Lighting / Tai and Tony Wang  for matching donations ($15,000), Corning Chinese Christian Church ($7,000) for fundraising in such a short amount of time, Shanghai Commercial Bank, Flushing Bank, Global Federation of Chinese Business Women – New York, Sandy and William Yeh, Michelle Lin,  and our supportive community members. It’s supporters like these who continue to inspire even through difficult times. 

Also incredibly thankful for the efforts of Ken Hom and his family for helping with coordinating the shipping of PPE from oversea manufacturers and personally donating supplies from his home. At the time Mr. Hom was overseas in China when he had reached out to the Glow Community Center Covid-19 Relief Fundraiser. He immediately contacted his children in the US to arrange for donations of medical supplies. Julie Zhu, a Long Island resident who also followed our fundraiser and donated 3 boxes of N95 masks from her home. Lin Jian Feng & Zheng Zhao Wen for assisting with the direct deliveries to the hands of front line essential workers and medical staff.

啟揚活動中心Covid-19救濟基金,結合WAC Lighting和朋友們的努力,捐贈北漢普斯特德鎮"免下車看電影”活動2萬個口罩。

北漢普斯特德鎮(North Hempstead)本周日起推出夏季"免下車看電影"系列,以1985年冒險喜劇片“ The Goonies”等電影為特色的電影,將於5月23日晚上8點在華盛頓港北漢普斯特德鎮海灘公園(Beach Park)拉開序幕。

將近500名當地居民已報名參加這個周日的"免下車看電影"活動,他們將是第一批體驗這系列活動的觀眾。 首場將於星期日晚上8點舉行, 目前名額已都售罄。但根據鎮監督Judi Bosworth的辦公室,本週將會更新未來的放映資料。 若想預約,請上鎮網查詢NorthHempsteadNY.gov/drive-in:……..該計劃很有趣,適合整個家庭參與,並且最重要的是,它符合我們在過去兩個月中一直遵循的社交距離準則……”鎮監督朱迪·博斯沃思(Judi Bosworth)在一份聲明中說。

為了幫助及維護當地居民和前線服務人員在參加活動時的安全,WAC Lighting和啟揚活動中心特地為該活動系列捐贈了20,000個防護口罩。

自新冠肺炎疫情大流行開始以來,WAC Lighting 和啟揚活動中心創始人甘台甯&王忠琦夫婦(Tai &Tony Wang)以及啓揚活動中心董事羅維宗(Jerry Lo)一直在努力與各方協調,羅維宗更是親力親為的對紐約市和長島的第一缐醫療人員運送個人防護設備PPE和其他防護物品。 在各方親朋好友們的支持下,疫情大流行期間收到的捐款已超過40,000美元-都做為搶購防護物資用。 捐贈的PPE物資則包括有N95口罩,KN95口罩,手術口罩、一次性醫療和防護口罩,身體防護罩,手套,套頭罩,溫度計,護目鏡和面罩等等。

首先要感謝我們的長期支持者:WAC Lighting ($15,000.00),上海商業銀行,法拉盛銀行,世界華人企業家婦女企管協會大紐約分會-葉周森娣/葉慶文夫婦和我們的社區內的熱心成員。

另外特別感謝的是紐約上州康寧中華基督教會熱心的教友們,在刁小英姐妹的號召下,響應啓揚籌款的呼籲,在很短時間內不但募到款項而且得到教會的對等捐款,共籌得$7,000,寄到啓揚活動中心,真是人間處處有溫暖,為善不落人後。

還有值得一提的是有位遠在中國的譚興健(Ken Hom)先生看到報載啓揚活動中心募款的呼籲後,特請在美的子女安排捐贈醫療物資。還有一位住在長島的朱大姐,也是看到報載,特別捐出家裡四盒中的三盒N95口罩,真令人感動。

口罩女神林静一直協助我們到處聯絡醫院,林劍鋒和鄭昭偉則幫忙我們把醫療物資親自送到第一線醫護人員手中,在此也一併感謝。

啓動愛心,公益宏揚
