HAAPI Food Fair Drive-Thru

OCA-Greater Houston will host a HAAPI Food Fair Drive-Thru every month in 2020 in partnership with the Houston Food Bank and the support of TX State Representative Gene Wu.

We are a volunteer-driven organization with limited resources and funding. But with your financial help, we can feed more Houston families who are in desperate need of basic necessities like rice. A donation of $100 will help feed a family of four for approximately 2 weeks, and it is 100% tax deductible. All proceeds will go towards supporting the monthly HAAPI Food Fair Drive-Thru to provide groceries for the families who come to the event.

Our first food fair is on Saturday, June 6, 2020, 11AM to 2PM at Bush Elementary School.

#GivingTuesday has launched #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of unity to take place on May 5, 2020, as a response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.

Your support allows us to continue doing the work for AAPI communities on the local and national level. Our work to end anti-Asian discrimination due to COVID-19, fight harmful immigration bans targeting AAPIs, empower AAPI professionals and students, uplift AAPI art & culture and much more are due to the support and contributions of our OCA family and friends, like you.

We are asking for your support so we can continue to advocate for Asian American Pacific Islanders (AAPI) and address anti-Asian hate through future Bystander Trainings.

Legacy & Leadership Campaign

In May 2016, OCA-Greater Houston (OCA-GH) received a historic opportunity with a $1 Million Dollar 2-to-1 Matching Grant until the 2020 Census and 2021 redistricting by a National Foundation committed to helping the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) community build capacity and sustainability to continue OCA-GH’s work developing future AAPI leadership and civic engagement (including Citizenship assistance). This means for every $1 you donate, the foundation will match with $2.OCA-Greater Houston is one of 25 national AAPI organizations selected for this program in recognition of the work the chapter has done for the community since 1979. The Legacy & Leadership Campaign will ensure the capacity building, sustainability, and growth of OCA-GH programs and builds on our current community partner relationships to bring together the power and reach of AAPIs in the Greater Houston Metropolitan area. The Asian American population in Greater Houston is growing at a dramatic rate, and we want to ensure that the civic institutions that serve the diverse Asian American communities will be able to keep pace with the population growth and build capacity for the future.

Harvey AAPI Community Relief Fund

As TX State Rep. Gene Wu said on August 29, 2017, “This may be the worst of times. But this is the best of humanity.” As a community of immigrants and children of immigrants, it is in our roots to band together and help each other out in the face of disaster. 

Here’s how you can help:

Donate now. OCA–Greater Houston and our community partners have established the Harvey AAPI Community Relief Fund that will work in conjunction with the Harvey Community Relief Fund that was founded by other trusted organizations in Houston to pool resources and coordinate their distribution. We want to make sure that the AAPI community is represented and adequately served in efforts to recover and rebuild, and that aid is distributed efficiently and equitably to all underserved populations of Houston. Harvey is a disaster of historic proportions and is not something that is short-term. We are looking at a multi-year time period where people will need shelter and assistance and years of work to help communities rebuild over the long term.
