—”Let’s End Hunger!”
For its second November straight, a local food drive in Flowery Branch is being hosted by Choe’s HapKiDo. Choe’s HapKiDo Works with Charity to assist the Georgia Mountain Food Bank (GMFB) in Gainesville, the martial arts community is determined to change lives one class at a time.
GMFB is a non-profit organization whose mission is to reduce hunger throughout North Georgia. According to Choe’s Instructor Rivera, “At Choe’s HapKiDo, one of our precepts is to serve the community. This is one way to serve the community.”
Last year, the amount of non-perishable food collected for GMFB weighed 125 pounds. When asked how Choe’s HapKiDo works with Charity and became a part of the food project, Instructor Rivera reflects, “We had a successful food drive last year, and that inspired us to do another one this year.”
Choe’s HapKiDo aims to drop off this month’s food collected by the end of the month to GMFB.
The next project that Choe’s HapKiDo plans to participate in is Blanket and Socks Drive and is teaming up with Project Live Love.
