The COVID-19 pandemic continues to wreak havoc on communities across the globe. Thanks to the effort put forth by scientists, researchers, doctors, among many others, vaccines have been developed that have shown evidence of generating strong immune responses against the COVID-19 virus. As the scientific community and public officials have emphasized, widespread vaccination is an essential pillar of battling the COVID-19 pandemic.
In response to challenges brought by the new Omicron variant, BAPS Charities donated $5,000 to California Northstate University (CNSU) in Sacramento, CA, recognizing the great work of CNSU to vaccinate the local communities in large numbers to help fight the pandemic.
California Northstate University, College of Pharmacy & College of Medicine has been actively offering COVID-19 Immunization Clinics since January 2021 in the Sacramento Region. CNSU has administered more than 50,000 Covid Vaccines in 2021, through on-campus as well as off-campus clinics, and now continuing to provide COVID Booster Shots to the communities at large. A team of volunteers from BAPS Charities Sacramento center visited CNSU, to highlight and recognize their extraordinary effort in vaccinating our communities, as we continue to endure the pandemic with ongoing variants of the COVID-19 virus.
“On behalf of CNSU faculty, staff and students, we want to sincerely thank BAPS Charities for the strong support,” said Dr. Xiaodong Xavier Feng, Dean, and Professor, College of Pharmacy, CNU Vice President of Admissions and Student Services. A warm welcoming reception was organized by CNSU to appreciate the recognition from BAPS Charities. Bobbie Singh-Allen, Mayor of Elk Grove City also graced the occasion explaining the importance of volunteering and acknowledging the excellent work from both CNSU as well as BAPS Charities. Leaders from both sides agreed to continue future collaboration with a spirit of selfless service to the community.
