Last week, State Committeewoman and City Council candidate Sandra Ung worked with local companies to give away PPE to a nonprofit organization in Fresh Meadows.
Ung partnered with BTZ Medsolution and Kong Ye Medical Supplies to deliver 5,000 masks for Women for Afghan Women, which will distribute to their clients across the city.
WAW promotes the rights of disenfranchised women with a variety of services, including supporting victims of domestic violence, legal assistance, immigration help and job placement.
“Women for Afghan Women is an important organization for thousands of clients in the Fresh Meadows and Flushing community,” Ung said. “The pandemic has hit our community hard, and domestic violence rates are up across the city.
Ung is running for term-limited Councilman Peter Koo’s seat in District 20, which includes Flushing and other parts of northeast Queens. Other candidates include John Choe, Neng Wang and Hailing Chen.
