As part of their attempts to give back to the community in which they live, Indian American doctors have donated $300,000 to the building of a food bank and an Indian community centre in the state of New Jersey.
According to a press statement issued Friday, the Monmouth Ocean County Association of Physicians of Indian Origin has donated USD150,000 to a food bank and an Indian Cultural Centre in Toms River, New Jersey.
MOCAPPI, which has raised over USD 500,000 through yearly philanthropic galas, popular golf excursions, and other activities throughout the years, will continue to make a difference in society through its generous gifts.
“It has long been a dream of MOCAAPI members to make a significant donation, which is being realised today with a USD150,000 donation to the Fulfill Food Bank of Monmouth Ocean Counties and a USD150,000 donation to the Indian Cultural & Community Centre to construct a much-needed Community Hall in Toms River,” said MOCAAPI president, Dr. Avinash Gupta.
“We have been able to raise over USD500,000 over the years thanks to everyone’s engagement, generosity, and thanks to our prior presidents’ efforts,” he added.
