The community is beautiful with unity; the holiday is cozy with care and love. On the afternoon of November 22, 2022 (Tuesday), a memorable holiday gifting event was successfully held in Flushing community, co-hosted by the Worontzoff Law Firm, the Access Future, and the New York Public Safety Patrol (PSP). The event was kindly co-sponsored by a few active Asian agencies including Lin Rong Sheng Traditional Chinese Medicine Clinic, Fulham Bakery Eighth Ave, Seven Color Imports, Math Magic, Yo Health, LINA MEI YouTube Channel and Ruyi Auction, ABC Worldwide Logistics, Malaysian United Group and many other non-profit organizations and small and medium-sized businesses. Community members got together to share and enjoy a special moment and joyfully look forward to a healthy, successful, and safe 2023.

At the moment, the outdoor temperature dropped below 30F. However, the warm atmosphere made everyone feel happy and cozy. Mr. Jiang from Worontzoff Law Firm, also the initiator of the event, greeted the guests with a special celebration note. "Under the difficult post-epidemic economic situation, cohesion is extra important. Thanksgiving is a unique American holiday and a special moment for family reunion. We are grateful to small and medium-sized enterprises, non-governmental organizations and groups for their generosity and enthusiasm. Today please allow us to take the opportunity to express our gratitude for all the contributions.” The Access Future (AF) is a non-profit organization established in February 2022, with a mission to provide language assistance and career training for immigrants with limited English proficiency. Vice President Nan Wu is the General Director for the event. "I am very excited to see that in addition to corporate donations, there are also volunteers, old and young. Everyone spares no effort to contribute their own to the development of the community. Our next generation of Chinese Americans has followed the role models for the community and personal development. Young people achieve personal development through devoting themselves to community building and helping others.”

As one of the co-organizers, the New York Public Safety Patrol took the responsibility on their own for the security and logistical support. The team has provided night patrol services for the Flushing area since the beginning of the epidemic in 2020, and is all composed of community volunteers. “We greatly appreciate and call for the community’s support and donations. We are so excited to host this special Thanksgiving celebration this year, bringing triumph into the Flushing community. I hope that with your support and inspiration, the Public Safety Patrol will continue to offer service and protection, and celebrates the festival together every year!" Vice President Li told reporters.

 

Ms. Zhuang Yan from Lin Rong Sheng Traditional Chinese Medicine Clinic called on the community to take special care of those in need, especially to help the elderly with English language barriers in their daily life. Jingjing, CEO of YO Health, has provided free handmade fresh yogurt drinks for various community events, with wide compliments and recognition. Jingjing said: "Healthy diet is a critical factor for a quality life. Our Asian community should establish a good lifestyle. Everyone's health is the foundation for the sustainable development and prosperity of the community." Kitty Tang from Fulham Bakery made a special trip from Brooklyn to Flushing to support the event. She said: "From Brooklyn, Chinatown to Flushing, we always have a good tradition. Seeing more and more businesses and people from the community support the Asian community, I am extremely happy and proud to be a part of the contributors. Hopefully we can bring a similar event to the Eighth Avenue area next year."
It is worth mentioning that Natasha Kulviwat from Thailand, young founder of the Math Magic , has generously supported this event. Math Magic is a non-profit organization that provides high-quality, affordable professional math tutoring to school-age children. In addition, Seven Colors, LINA MEI YouTube channel and Ruyi Auction, ABC Global Logistics, and Malaysian United Group all offered special gifts and COVID/Flu prevention kits and devices.
