Local business donated over 60,000 masks to school boards across Ontario.
Education Minister Stephen Lecce, Director General Catherine Y.M. Hsu of the Taipei Economic & Cultural Office in Toronto, and MPP Logan Kanapathi stopped by the Kuo Hua Trading Company to thank CEO Lisa Chung.
“This is a wonderful display of the Ontario spirit,” Kanapathi said. “This generous donation from Lisa Chung and the Kuo Hua Trading Company is another example of how we have come together as a community in our fight against COVID-19. It’s an honour to have such a dedicated and committed person in the Markham-Thornhill community.”
Kuo Hua started as a small Taiwanese supermarket on the corner of Sheppard and Willowdale in 1995 and now operates several chains of stores serving Markham’s Taiwanese market.
