January 27, 2023 Partnership w/ San Jose Public Library
We are grateful for our partnership with San Jose Public Library. Over the years, the library has grown tremendously. It is more than just books and a learning environment. It has and continues to open its doors to all individuals with diverse backgrounds, provide a safe space, and collaborate with various local organizations to provide community resources for those in need. On January 27th, 2023, Mekong was invited to celebrate Lunar New Year at Tully Community Branch Library. We celebrated with many fun activities, including arts and crafts, games, prize bags, books giveaway, a read-aloud, refreshments, and a special lion dance for the community. Councilmember Bien Doan, representing council district 7 in the City of San Jose, made a surprise visit to celebrate culture, greet, and show support to the community. We look forward to continuing our partnership and in working together to build a healthier community.

Mekong Community Wellness Center have collaborated with Pacific Coast Farmers' Market Association (PCFMA) since October 2021. It is nice to see families bright and early, ready to shop for produce that are locally grown! "PCFMA was founded in July of 1988. Its mission is to connect California farmers to their local communities... PCFMA currently manages over 50 farmers’ markets, making them the oldest and largest farmers’ market association on the West Coast!". We are grateful for the opportunity that PCFMA has given us because it allows us to connect and engage with our community. Through this, we have met so many wonderful people!

January 23, 2022 Collaboration with Chopsticks Alley Art
Lina, Case Manager at Mekong Community Center, attended Chopsticks Alley's first session of "Asian Artists Healing Collective" (Aah Collective) at Sanborn County Park. Chopsticks Alley Art "created Aah Collective as a convening place for Asian artists to meet in a natural park setting to address mental health challenges that they faced in times of Covid and systematic racism towards Asian Americans." This event allowed Asian artists to connect through meditation, art, poetry, and honest conversations about mental health challenges faced by the Asian community. Lina spoke about the impact that culture has on mental health with hopes to increase awareness, erase the stigma, and help strengthen communities.
