The Sikh Cultural Society of Erie raised $5,000 for oxygen and medical supplies.

Genelia has many relatives that live in India that are suffering. She says these trying times bring out the best in human nature.

“I hear the fear and voices of my cousins and relatives on the phone, one of my grandmothers neighbors passed away only after two days of sickness, unable to get a medical condition, hospital bed or oxygen,” said Genelia Kang, Sikh Cultural Society of Erie.

Genelia also donated and additional $350 she won in a school competition.
