How the 5K will support CMAA's COVID-19 Relief Efforts
The Dim Sum & Then Some 5K is a fundraiser benefiting Chinese Mutual Aid Association (CMAA). CMAA’s mission is to serve the needs, promote the interests, and enhance the well-being of low-income immigrants and refugees from all countries and generations and foster their participation in U.S. society. As you can imagine, our low-income client community has been hit especially hard by this crisis, and as a result, our services are even more crucial during this time.
This year’s Dim Sum 5K proceeds will support our COVID-19 emergency relief efforts. CMAA has been supporting clients in combating the economic effects of the crisis, including launching new, emergency services. Proceeds from the 5K would help us to expand our efforts in providing direct financial assistance to low-income families affected by the crisis, assisting them with housing payments, utility costs, food, and any other immediate needs.
Additionally, through our Community Care Program (CCP), CMAA manages approximately 200 home care aides who continue to assist the elderly and disabled in their homes, providing essential services to this vulnerable population and supporting their health and well-being. 5K proceeds this year would help ensure that these frontline staff have access to Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) as they put themselves at risk on a daily basis.
