Thanks to Chimelong and WhiteWater, 5,000 masks donated to healthcare workers

Healthcare workers at St Paul's Hospital in Vancouver now have 5,000 protective masks to help keep them safe as they minister to others in the COVID-19 pandemic, thanks to the efforts and compassion of two Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) member companies, Chimelong Group and Whitewater.

The gift of 5,000 medical grade protective masks recently shipped from Chimelong Group in China to WhiteWater in Canada. WhiteWater arranged the donation to St Paul's. 

This successful endeavor is emblematic of the global nature of our industry and its focus on community. TEA honors these generous and caring efforts.
