The severity of the pandemic is spreading to all kinds of industries. And Manhattan Chinatown, among all communities, has been one of the hardest-hit areas. The self-organized charity group called “Send Chinatown Love” recently launched a donation program aims to help restaurants in Chinatown by providing them with digital resources to obtain financial assistance.
Send Chinatown Love comments that the mission of the non-profit organization is to help adversely impacted, Chinese-owned businesses through setting up websites and selling gift cards in order to collect donations, in turn increasing the likelihood of survival for many struggling merchants through the period of pandemic.
