Chia-Chia Chien, head of the Culture to Culture Foundation, introduced U.S. Rep. Jerry McNerney (D., Pleasanton) to a room full of friends and supporters at her Alamo home Sunday. The Congressman thanked those in attendance for their support and their work in the community, and also mingled to meet people and answer their questions.
Chien, a widely recognized social worker, founded Culture to Culture 10 years ago to promote mental health and emotional wellness within the Bay Area's Asian-American population. She has integrated the Chinese seniors group that formerly met in Alamo into the Danville Seniors, which holds a popular exercise and dance meeting from 9:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Wednesdays, open to all.
Culture to Culture also sponsors the annual Senior Volunteers Awards, now in their fourth year, that are presented in October, with nominations due Sept. 1. Learn more here.
