Donations Spearheaded by Community Leaders Louis Yip and Sunny Ng

CENTRAL FALLS, RI- On Monday, April 6th, the Chinese-American Community of Rhode Island donated 200,000 face masks to the State of Rhode Island. Local businessmen and community leaders Louis Yip and Sunny Ng of Tai-O Group delivered the masks to the Rhode Island Department of Health, along with several thousand to be distributed to the Cities of Central Falls and Pawtucket.
