HAAPI Food Fair Drive-Thru
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 next food fair is in July 2020. Stay tuned for more details!

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.
