Food Drive In The International District
Mayor Turner came to the International District last weekend to join the food drive at the Boone Road Church. More than one hundred church volunteers and community leaders helped to give away thousands of bags of food to needy families.
In the long lines many of our local residents lined up in hundred-degree heat waiting for food packages. Some of them were single moms with small kids. Some of them had lost jobs because of the coronavirus pandemic.
When Mayor Turner walked into the crowd, people called him “Governor Turner” when they saw him coming. At first I didn’t understand. Finally it was clear that these people wanted him to run for Governor in the future. Mayor Turner is a Harvard graduate and his leadership will lead him to a bright future.
For over fifteen years, with the leadership of State Representative Hubert Vo and many community leaders and with the support from the Mayor, the International District has changed the southwestern part of the city and has become a model for the city’s economy.
In this Pandemic we have given away hundreds of computers, food packages and plan to help the apartment complexes and shopping centers to sanitize the environment.
Many years ago we came to this great land to seek opportunity. Most of us have reached our America Dream. Today when we can extend our help to the local community, it is not just an honor, it is our responsibility.
After I handed out thousands of masks to our brothers and sisters in such hot summer weather, I still feel very happy. We are all really blessed. America is beautiful.
我们和市长走进教会大堂，群众高喊特纳州长来了， 我当时还未能理解，原来大家都已准备他市长卸任后，可能角逐州长，我们和市民交往多年， 这位哈佛毕业的非裔市长， 确实有高度之亲和力，此次疫情，他的表现可圈可点。
