COVID-19 has halted much of our activity in 2020, but it has also allowed us to get more connected with the community through working with our sponsors to honor our hospital workers with donations of meals, and partnering with DKNet AM 730 radio to allow the Korean community to show its resilience and complete a successful COVID-19 Relief Fund campaign, raising more than $17,000 that was used to donated KN-95 masks to first responders at Irving PD, Carrollton PD, Parkland Hospital, and The North Texas Food Bank.
Through these experiences, we’ll continue to develop stronger relationships with other community organizations and broaden our network to identify more passionate, committed leaders who will help to actively carry out our mission to establish new heights in society as Korean Americans and equip the next generations to continue to raise our professional status in America.
Everyone in our network should be proud of how far we’ve come in a little over a decade with the original vision of supporting immigrants looking to start their professional careers in America. However, we are nowhere close to being satisfied with our current situation and understand there is much work to be done to break through tangible and intangible barriers to achieve the recognition we deserve in this society.
I urge you to stay connected and get involved, and do your part to make a difference. I am excited to see what we can accomplish, together.
