Assemblymember Kansen Chu’s 6th Annual Community Heroes Recognition Event

Monday, September 28, 2020

(Milpitas, CA) – Assemblymember Kansen Chu (D – Milpitas), will be hosting his 6th Annual Community Hero Awards Ceremony on Friday, October 2nd, 2020 at the San Jose City College Milpitas Extension (Parking Lot) located in Milpitas. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s ceremony will be a "drive-through” for honorees and those who nominated them.

The Community Hero Awards Ceremony is an annual tradition started by Assemblymember Chu. For the last five years, honorees were nominated because they dedicated their time and efforts to make our community a better place to live, work, play, and retire. This year, COVID-19 has impacted our community tremendously, but with that impact, we have also seen a rise in the number of unsung heroes that dedicated their time to give back to the community. We have received the most amount of nominations this year as compared to previous years.

“I am so proud to represent a community that is home to so many selfless heroes,” said Assemblymember Kansen Chu (D-Milpitas). “During a year when so many are struggling, I am so inspired to see those who have stepped out to help out. These local heroes are doing good deeds daily to help their friends, neighbors, and most of the time, people who they do not know. The pandemic has caused many challenges, but I am glad to be able to do one small thing to honor those who are lifting up our community.”
