The 4th of July is more than food and fireworks for the Chinese American Relief Effort (C.A.R.E.) organization. The group hosts an annual festival to both celebrate Chinese culture and raise funds to purchase school supplies for needy families in HISD; all proceeds from this year’s event went to Hobby Elementary School. With authentic Chinese food, arts and crafts, and exciting cultural performance, the event draws a large crowd every year. As president of the Overseas Chinese Education Foundation Houston chapter, Jing organized their presence at the event and got help from her son as well as Vivian Peng, PRISM’s VP of Project Management, and her two sons.
