COVID-19 Donations and Community Support

Thank you Syosset Chinese Community for your generous donations!  As of March 31 CAAS has received a total of $11,816 , far exceeding our original fundraising target.  After coordinating with the Nassau County Office of Asian American Affairs (NCOAAA), we have made some adjustments to the donation project based on local hospital and community needs. We will focus more on the needs of our community and hope to continue to receive your understanding and support.

Additionally, several local businesses are also doing their part to help out in these trying times. See below to find out more about the different community outreach programs that are going on, as well as local businesses that are still active during these trying times.
