Through Partnerships with Individuals and Organizations, the Kim Campaign Has Delivered Over 20,000 Units of Protective Equipment
Fullerton, CA – Over the weekend, Congressional candidate Young Kim was featured in the Washington Post for her work over the past several weeks to assist individuals, community groups, first responders, and healthcare workers as they deal with the COVID-19 pandemic. To date, the Kim campaign has helped provide over 20,000 units of protective equipment to those in need through partnerships with individuals and organizations in the region.
The article details Kim’s efforts to help the 39th district:
“Some Republican challengers have turned to their own version of constituent services during this paralyzed state of their campaigns. In California, Ted Howze and Young Kim illustrated this approach in two likely must-win districts if Republicans have any chance to reclaim the majority.
“Kim, running against Rep. Gil Cisneros (D) in a seat anchored in Orange County, has tried to coordinate volunteers to donate masks and other protective gear to local hospitals.
“‘Every little bit that we do today will make a huge difference to those who are affected by the virus. Together, we will get through this,’ Kim said in a video.”
In addition to facilitating donations of protective equipment, Young Kim for Congress has retooled its website to provide resources to those in need during this crisis, volunteered at food banks, put together mask for frontline medical workers, and is holding a series of virtual town halls on the COVID-19.
