The Youth Development Club

Future Change Makers Join the

Community First Food Pantry

In addition to the help of our regular volunteers, we are so excited to welcome a group of young volunteers (ages 10 to 15) from the Youth Community Club, a youth group of Chinese Coffee Club, to help out at our pantry. 

Each week, a group of 8 youth volunteers, accompanied by two parents who help coordinate the logistics, rise up early to drive all the way from Westchester, NY to our lower Manhattan location. These young volunteers work tirelessly and swiftly to help sort, bag, and prepare food packages to meet the schedules for pick up and deliveries by other volunteers and other community organizations.    

About the Chinese Coffee Club, ACUC, & Youth Community Club

The Chinese Coffee Club is a network of more than 1,000 Chinese Americans. Most are first generation professional immigrants in NYC.

During the start of COVID-19 pandemic, they organized a notable donation campaign by forming the ACUC (American Chinese United Care) alliance. In a very short time, since March, they raised a whopping $5.8 million worth of cash donations and PPE supplies to assist greater New York. The ACUC alliance is comprised of 159 Chinese American organizations, alumni organizations, and small businesses. 

An ACUC founder, Ms. Angelene Huang, launched the Youth Community Club with a goal to raise the next generation of Chinese Americans with more social responsibility.

UA3 is grateful that Ms. Huang connected with our pantry to offer their help and created this wonderful opportunity for our youth to participate in community service.
