We would like to thank the Tzu Chi Foundation to fight the pandemic with us.

We TECO in Chicago have recently received many inquiries regarding PPE donations from public service agencies such as local hospitals and nursing facilities. We would like to thank the Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation USA-Midwest Region Chicago Chapter for donating face masks, goggles, and blankets to these facilities after contacting them. Tzu Chi Chicago Chapter stated that they would love to help those in need, and for details please contact Ms. Amy Hsieh at 216-798-1586.

In addition, Tzu Chi Chicago Chapter is also here to help Taiwanese students residing in the Midwest and in need of masks. For students, please contact your school's Taiwanese Student Association to register. Your Taiwanese Student Association will contact the Tzu Chi Chicago Chapter for appropriate procedures to obtain masks. Our Education Division has contacted the Taiwanese Student Associations in this regard. Students who need further assistance can contact our Education Division at 312-616-0805.

On behalf of the Government of Taiwan, Director General Eric Huang of TECO in Chicago has donated 300,000 surgical masks in April to the Governments of Chicago, Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio to help the medical workers and first responders combat COVID-19. We would like to thank charitable organizations such as the Tzu Chi Foundation who continue this fight with us. Thank you, and we wish everyone health and safety!
