Betty Kwan Chinn Homeless Foundation press release: 

On November 26, 2018, Betty Chinn’s Blue Angel vehicle was involved in a collision which rendered the truck a total loss.

Through donations from individuals and organizations throughout Humboldt County and beyond, the Betty Kwan Chinn Homeless Foundation was able to garner enough funds to purchase a new truck.

This vehicle will be used to help Betty Chinn continue to serve meals to over 150 homeless individuals throughout the county, ranging from as far east as Orleans, as far north as Orick, and as far south as Weott.

To celebrate the arrival of the new Blue Angel truck, the Betty Kwan Chinn Homeless Foundation will be hosting a ribbon-cutting ceremony on May 19, 2019 at noon.

In addition, from 12-3 p.m., the Day Center at 133 7th Street in Eureka will be open to the public for an open house. The organization’s staff hopes that this event will give people an opportunity to learn more about some of the services offered through the Day Center and other Betty Kwan Chinn Homeless Foundation programs.
