Korean American Service Day continues!

This upcoming fall, CKA is launching Korean American Service Day (KASD) as an annual program to showcase the disparate volunteer efforts of the Korean-American community into a day when we can reach across families, friends and communities to provide support and serve others as the different locales still struggle with disruptions of COVID-19.

Korean American Service Day (KASD) orignally launched back in November 2014 by the Network for Korean American Leaders (NetKAL). Hundreds of volunteers participated in the inaugural event that supported twenty nonprofits in five cities: New York; Atlanta; Washington, D.C.; Los Angeles; and San Francisco.

Co-led by Ellen Kim, a CKA member, the mission of the national service day event was to encourage Korean Americans across the nation to give back to their local communities and demonstrate the Korean American community’s will and power to become positive agents of change in our society. Ellen continued KASD in 2015 and 2017. During that time, KASD increased from five cities to nine: Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, New Haven, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Seoul, and Washington, D.C. With COVID-19, this national event was paused over the last few years. In addition, with the merger of NetKAL with the Council of Korean Americans, the plan is to continue in the future under the new banner of the this merged organization.  

Thank you for your ongoing support as we invest in Korean American organizations that directly work with the most marginalized and vulnerable sectors of our community.
