Graduates of Temple Law School’s LL.M. program in Beijing, China, led by Wang Zhengzhi (Edward) LLM ’03, have made a generous donation of personal protective equipment (PPE) to Temple University Hospital for use during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The gift of 5,000 masks and 300 gowns, packaged in boxes bearing the hashtag #UnitedWeShallOvercome, was gathered and sent to Temple’s healthcare workers in a spirit of solidarity and gratitude. Mr. Wang described the gift as an opportunity to give back. “I am pleased to do something with other alumni for Temple,” he remarked. “It is Temple who teaches us in many ways. The Temple spirit has been and will lead us for our whole lives.”
Dean Gregory Mandel lauded the gift and the alumni who worked together to make it happen. “This is a wonderful expression of the community and friendship shared among our Temple Law alumni, even around the globe,” he said. “I am tremendously grateful to Mr. Wang and to all of the Beijing LL.M. alumni who have shown us, and especially our friends and colleagues at Temple Hospital, such care.”
