July 29, 2023 - 7th Annual Superhero Festival at San Jose History Park hosted by San Andreas Regional Center


We believe that everyone, despite their background and challenges, deserves equal access to community resources and to live life to their fullest potential. It was Mekong’s second time attending the San Andreas Regional Center’s Annual Superhero 5k walk/run and Festival to support individuals with differing abilities. The event was located at San Jose History Park, with over 60 service providers and community-based organizations that came together to share information about services offered in the community. The wellness team had a great time dressing up in superhero costumes to fit in with the theme and show support. The team enjoyed all the music and dance performances by the College of Adaptive Arts, Latizmo Hip Hop, and the New Hope Band Music Camp Band, who all provide equitable and positive experience to individuals with disabilities who historically have not had access to higher education and extracurricular activities such as in dance and music. 

July 22, 2023 - Minority Mental Health Awareness hosted by Hellyer Neighborhood Association and Santa Clara Couty of Behavioral Healthl


Mekong Community Center attended the 3rd Annual Minority Mental Wellness Resource Fair to assist Hellyer Neighborhood Association and Santa Clara County of Behavioral Health in bringing mental health awareness to the community and helping to eliminate the stigma. The event was held at Hellyer Park where many health and other non-profit organizations came together to provide resources to the community. The event held a free screening area, giveaways, games and activities, entertainment that celebrated diversity, culture, and more. The wellness team enjoyed meeting individuals and families who stopped by Mekong’s booth to share their stories, concerns, and needs with us. We look forward to the 4th Annual Resource Fair and continuing to help build a healthier and stronger community. 

January 27  and February 4, 2023 - Lunar New Year Celebration with San Jose Public Library and the San Jose Chinese School


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 Wellness Center had another Lunar New Year celebration with San Jose Chinese School, a parent co-op school that provides and cultivates a rich Chinese language learning environment for the South San Jose community. On February 4, 2023, we celebrated the new year at Leland High School with games, food, and a lion dance performance. San Jose Mayor Matt Mahan attended the event as well to celebrate Chinese culture and Lunar New Year.
