A group of young professionals and entrepreneurs are hoping to make the holidays a little brighter for families in need last week.
Hanin Young Professionals and Entrepreneurs, also known as HYPE, is a non-profit organization made up of young Korean Canadian professionals from Burnaby and surrounding cities. The group aims to bring young Korean Canadians together to network and get involved in the community, according to a press release.
This month HYPE partnered with the Greater Vancouver Food Bank as part of its 2018 Support Your Local Community initiative. They set out to raise $500 and collect 500 pounds of non-perishable food items for the food bank, and they’re on track to hit that goal, according to Mark Seong, HYPE chair.
The plan is to drop off the donations at the food bank this week.
