Samuel Kang (second from left), mayor of Duarte and head of total solutions at BYD Motors, donated several boxes of personal protective equipment to the South Pasadena Unified School District on Tuesday morning. According to Kang, BYD is the world’s largest manufacturer of PPE, having refashioned many of its manufacturing facilities shortly after the COVID-19 pandemic hit the United States in March.

Kang has served nine years on the Duarte City Council.
