In late December, CGCC Foundation and CGCC members participated in Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s annual holiday donation activity series, sending holiday cheer and best wishes to children in New York State.
On Wednesday, December 19th, CGCC Foundation provided 200 new toys to the Governor’s annual toy and coat drive at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York. Joining members of the New York State Guard, Office of the Governor and other volunteers, CGCC team members counted, sorted, and packed hundreds of toys and coats for families and their children.
On December 21, Hu Gang, member of the CGCC Executive Board, President & CEO of Greenland USA joined Governor Andrew Cuomo in distributing the toys to children at the Long Beach Martin Luther King Center in Long Island.
The annual holiday donation activities were initiated by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo several years ago with the aim of encouraging people to help neighbors and support families and children in need across New York State.
This is the second year that CGCC Foundation joined this initiative and this year the foundation’s contribution was doubled with support from Bank of China USA. With joint efforts across the community, 4,000 holiday toys, coats and school supply donations were received by the drive this year.
CGCC Foundation extends a heartfelt thanks to Bank of China and Mr. Hu for the participation and support of this initiative and invites more members to participate in this event and other charity events in the future.
CGCC and CGCC Foundation will continue to give back to the local community and help Chinese enterprises in the US to better fulfill corporate social responsibility through these charity programs. CGCC and CGCC Foundation wishes our members, friends and everyone in the community a happy holiday season!
