NEW YORK, July 26 (Xinhua)-- BROAD U.S.A. on Wednesday donated two BROAD air purifiers to a charity group in New York City where PM2.5 levels are high due to the ongoing Canadian wildfires.
"We are pleased to provide a cleaner and healthier operating environment for Crossroads Community Services volunteers, guests and staff," said Sunny Wang, president of BROAD U.S.A., at the donation ceremony held at the nonprofit group in mid-town Manhattan.
"Today's donation ceremony will be the starting point for our ambitious Clean Air Shelters initiative. In the future, we will bring high-performance indoor air quality solutions to more local communities and organizations to fortify our mission to combat the city's air pollution problem," said Wang.
"This generous donation illustrates BROAD's commitment to a healthy and sustainable environment. We appreciate their ongoing support of our mission," said Dennis Karr, vice chairperson of Crossroads Board of Directors.
The group, established in 1989 to help put an end to hunger and homelessness, actively and generously supports people in need with wholesome meals every morning and evening, said Jesse Ramos, executive director of Crossroads.
Crossroads had served 209,464 meals to more than 65,216 guests from January through June 30 this year, said Ramos.
