Flushing organization donates hundreds of meals to local first responders and frontline workers
A Flushing grassroots organization founded by state Assembly candidate Steven Lee donated 600 meals this past weekend to area first responders and frontline workers and plans to donate another 600 meals this upcoming week.
Asians in America (AiA) teamed up with local restaurants and business leaders to create meals with participation from seven area establishments. The group donated these meals to the 109th Precinct, Flushing Hospital Medical Center, NewYork-Presbyterian Queens and local fire departments.
The efforts are funded by donations and the group has set up a Go Fund Me to collect donations. The first 1200 meals were funded by a local real estate development firm F&T Group.
