APAS values partnerships with local businesses like Pho Orchid. Thank you, Dave Nguyen of Pho Orchid for his continuous generosity. We appreciate the dedication and contributions Dave has devoted to the Asian Pacific American Society of New Orleans. In addition to providing food in APAS community outreach programs, Pho Orchid donated a portion of their sales to APAS during Asian Heritage Month. Our 2022 chair person, Dr. Jung, presented Dave, APAS Vice Chair, with an appreciation award for contributing to our community.
APAS is possible because of our volunteers and partnerships like this. Thank you to Dave and his team at Pho Orchid!
