W.A.C. Lighting Spearheads Relief Efforts For Earthquake Victims in China
W.A.C. Lighting Vice President and Co-Founder Tai Wang is spearheading relief efforts to help earthquake victims in western China. W.A.C. Lighting is a leading manufacturer of track, recessed, under-cabinet, decorative and monorail lighting.
‘Our company and its employees are coming together to raise funds to help earthquake victims throughout China,’ explained Mrs. Wang. ‘Additionally, we are working closely with The Flushing Chinese Business Association of Queens to consolidate our efforts.’
W.A.C. Lighting, which recently opened a state of the art manufacturing facilities in southern China, employs 42 people from the earthquake zone, seven of who lost their family homes there.
Along with the other members of The Flushing Chinese Business Association of Flushing, Queens in New York City, the firm has helped to raise nearly $250,000 for quake relief.
W.A.C. Lighting and the FCBA plan to give the money to the Red Cross. ‘The Red Cross is well-known and trusted in China,’ Mrs. Wang explains. ‘The Red Cross Society of China was the first responder after the earthquake, arriving even before the army.
W.A.C. Lighting has provided relief after other disasters, including The 9-11 Attacks, Hurricane Katrina, the 921 Taiwan Earthquake, and the Tsunami.
