District J Gives Away Over 15K Free Masks
Our office partnered with several organizations to provide disposable masks to residents in District J, especially those who are most in need. On April 28th, we hosted a mask giveaway at PlazAmericas Mall (formerly Sharpstown Mall), where we gave out over 15,000 masks.
We want to give a sincere thanks to Kenneth Katz, owner of PlazAmericas, Kenneth Li and Alice Lee from the Southwest Management District, the Hua Xia Chinese School, and the Houston Asian Chamber of Commerce. We want to give a special thanks to the Houston Police Department for providing Sgt. Tuan N. Nguyen, Sr. Officer J. Chau, Sr. Officer P. Ho, Officer A. Chan and Officer M. Lopez, who directed traffic and made sure the event was a safe one. We also want to acknowledge the work of the following members of Houston Public Works, who stepped in on short notice to lend a hand: Wendell Allen – Field Supervisor; Dedric Foster – Equipment Worker; Stephon Gladney – Equipment Worker; and Mack Jamison – Equipment Worker
In addition to the event at PlazAmericas, we also participated in mask giveaways with organizations and companies including Sewa, the Joint Chinese Alumni, Hospitality Partners and Sew Pro.
