Call for donation 2020 March

March 21, 2020

Dear SABPA community,

First and foremost, we hope that you are keeping you and your loved ones safe and healthy at this unprecedented time.

In the past few weeks, we have watched COVID-19 developing into a global pandemic impacting communities around the world, including ours. While a lot of us merely experience the inconvenience of sheltering at home, the doctors and nurses are in the forefront of fighting the disease and saving lives. As many of you are aware, there is a severe shortage in basic medical supplies, including masks, goggles, and gowns, which puts the medical staff at high risk of getting infected.

Recognizing the urgent need to mitigate this situation, SABPA is calling for another round of donations to be used towards purchasing these life-saving medical supplies for local hospitals and clinics. We had generous donations from individuals in the past. This time, we particularly welcome and encourage organizations to join our efforts in raising more funds to enable the procurement of as many supplies as possible. 100% of your donations will go to the purchase of medical supplies. SABPA will also match your donations for up to $20,000.

You can make donations through the SABPA website (visit www.sabpa.org, go to the “Donations” tab, and click “Donation to COVID-19 Relief Fund”) or click this link. Once the donation is made, you will receive a confirmation email and be recognized on the SABPA website (optional). Since SABPA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, your donation may be tax deductible. Please remember to request for a matching fund if your company offers it.

This is the time for SABPA members and friends to come together to support the community we are in by contributing to the well-being of our doctors and nurses. We need your support more than any other times and would appreciate your immediate action.

Stephanie Shi, Chair of SABPA BOD

Peter Huang, President, San Diego Chapter
