This year the hurricane season has been extremely devastating. Many of our fellow Americans were forced to leave their homes submerged in water or lost their homes completely. Our prayers go out to all of those affected by natural disasters. To show our support, the Milwaukee Chinese Community Center hosted a fundraising luncheon on Saturday Sept 2nd, 2017. Since then, MCCC continued the effort and has raised a total of $10,062.24 to date from our members.
MCCC is continuing the fundraising activities and will set up a dedicated donation and sales booth for hurricane relief this weekend of Moon Festival (10/6 to 10/8) at China Lights. All income from the sales will be donated to the hurricane disaster relief fund via American Red Cross. MCCC youth leader groups will do the “You name the price” donation event through the weekend. We want to fulfill our mission to giving back to our community at large.
This effort was led by the MCCC and supported from all the local Chinese American Communities, including the Organization of Chinese Americans – Wisconsin chapter (OCA), and Chinese student groups from UW-Milwaukee, Medical College of Wisconsin, Marquette University, MSOE and other local Chinese Americans.
This weekend’s theme in China Lights is Moon Festival celebration, which is hosted by the MCCC and the OCA. Featuring shows including songs, dance and folk arts on the main stage. There will also be MCCC booths in the marketplace that sell Chinese goods such as clothing and decorative items, as well as an authentic Chinese food booth.
