Given the impact of the coronavirus outbreak in America, two separate groups of Class of 2021 students stepped forward to come to the aid of those in need before the end of semester. A group of 11th graders, including Apro Tsai, Brian Liu, Justin Chang, Kevin Wu, Vincent Chiang, and Shaun Toe, raised funds from AAIA community in order to purchase mask covers and donate them. Thanks to the generosity of AAIA students, parents, faculty, staff and the Board, the team was able to donate 400 pieces of N95 mask covers and 480 pieces of regular mask covers to John T. Mather Memorial Hospital in New York and Penn Medical Center in Pennsylvania. (Pictures 1-3)
A second group consisting of students from other schools and led by 11th grader Nicole Wu with the help from G10 Ginger Hsu and G9 Neil Chen to raise enough money to send over 1000 masks, 800 N95 masks and about 100 goggles to hospitals in New York and Washington state. The students sent the masks to Wasington and New York because they were one the first states to suffer the first wave of the virus.(Pictures 4-6)
AAIA is proud to be part of this caring community to contribute to the pandemic mitigation as our students took on active roles in being global citizens.
