Thank you Frontline Workers for your service to the community!

We first want to thank all frontline workers for being there to help support and protect our community during these difficult times.

Here at CAASC, we want to also do our part through the donation of PPE gear to frontline workers in our community in areas like the Bay Area, Sacramento, Solano County and even further beyond to Seattle and New York.

This effort would not be possible without the help of our very own CC Yin, who has led the initiative in the donation of surgical masks, goggles, gowns, face shields, and hand sanitizers to frontline workers.

For more information regarding CAASC and our donation efforts, we recommend viewing our Facebook page, as well as reading ABC7News story about CC Yin’s work in the community.
