Lotus Light Charity Society Covid-19 Community Caring Drive
Lotus Light distributes 25,000 free masks to protect vulnerable people against Covid-19
Since the onset of winter in the Northern Hemisphere, the Covid-19 pandemic has only worsened, with global cases recently surpassing 50 million. In B.C., confirmed cases have grown rapidly, especially in the last two weeks, with new cases now steadily topping 500 each day. As such, wearing a mask, proper physical distancing, and hand washing have become more important than ever for people to weather the pandemic.
This week, Lotus Light Charity Society completed the production of a second batch of fabric masks for donation to organizations serving low-income families, seniors, inner city schoolchildren, and other vulnerable groups. Recipients this time include Carnegie Community Centre, South Vancouver Neighbourhood House, The Salvation Army Belkin House, Cloverdale Community Kitchen, Strathcona Community Centre, Immigrant Link Centre Society, Gold Ribbon Society, Earthwise Society, and the inner city schools Seymour Elementary, Thunderbird Elementary, Britannia Elementary, Vanier School, and Montgomery School.
Lotus Light Charity Society has now distributed a total of 25,000 free cloth masks to help the vulnerable in our community during the pandemic. Of the masks donated, two thirds of them were sewn by LLCS volunteers in their spare time. Lotus Light would like to express our great gratitude to the volunteers for their dedication, as well as to our sponsors in the community for their strong support.
Lotus Light Charity Society is a registered charity (BN 14110-4893-RR0001). Thank you for your continued support during the pandemic!
