CACA Gives Away 1800 Pounds of Rice

A new community organization in town, the Chinese American Citizens Alliance recently held a fundraiser to purchase rice for low income seniors in the Chinatown area.

On Saturday, 30 volunteers from the UW and community gathered together at CISC to bag 1,800 pounds of rice for distribution.

Tickets were distributed this week to over 170 seniors who were able to pick up 10 pounds of rice each.

In these tough economic times, we really appreciate all the help we can get. Thank you CACA!
