    Chinese students and alumni from the Stillman School of Business China
    MBA Program came together to donate personal protective equipment (PPE)
    to first responders, nursing homes and other health care facilities in
    Essex County. Through their collective efforts, the group raised a total
    of 489,384 Ren Min Bi (RMB) or approximately $69,122 to use towards
    essential items.To get more news about top mba colleges in China, you can visit acem.sjtu.edu.cn official website.



    After the coronavirus started to spread in the United States, Jason Yin,
    professor and chair in the Department of Management, who oversees the
    China MBA Program, wanted to organize a donation drive among alumni and
    students in China. He collaborated with Dr. Longguang Shi, non-executive
    director of Viagold Capital, which provides international educational
    services, to find a China-based manufacturer that could produce
    protective equipment with any funds collected.



    The drive received an overwhelming response from Stillman students and
    alumni in China. Many members of the community personally reached out to
    ask how they could contribute. One student wrote, "Coronavirus is the
    common enemy of all of humankind. It is not confined by borders. We have
    to unite and fight back the same way."



    "All the MBA students and alumni felt the pain of their alma mater in
    the pandemic disaster and expressed their strong desire to help," said
    Yin. "They see this as a small token in return for the Seton Hall
    education they received."



    Yin also said that Shi felt inspired to join the relief effort after
    connecting with so many Seton Hall students and faculty in China. He
    donated $14,000 on behalf of his firm.



    Based on the considerable size of the donation, members of University
    Advancement, who helped coordinate the delivery on the New Jersey end,
    chose to distribute the supplies through the Essex County Sheriff's
    Office. The office serves as the local Federal Emergency Management
    Agency (FEMA) distribution center. The equipment will be accessible to
    frontline workers in over 20 municipalities throughout the County.



    "Our public sector-private sector partnership with these generous and
    civic-minded institutions has resulted in our acquisition of vital
    equipment, which will be distributed to Essex County first responders
    who are now on the dangerous frontline in mitigating the potentially
    deadly impact of coronavirus on a daily basis," stated Armando Fontoura,
    Essex County Sheriff. "Seton Hall University and Viagold have proved
    their magnanimity, unselfishness and community spirit in helping us save
    the lives of our neighbors."



    "We are pleased that our partners at Viagold and our alumni from China
    have chosen to help the Seton Hall community in such a meaningful way,"
    added Sheila Wolfinger, University associate vice president for
    development. "Many of the frontline health care workers and first
    responders in Essex County are Seton Hall students, alumni, friends and
    parents, and this donation will directly impact their health and
    safety."
