Long Beach FHA Celebrates Filipino American History Month
On October 3rd, California MENTOR’s Family Home Agency participated in an event hosted by the Filipino American Chamber of Commerce, South Bay Los Angeles. Together with the community and local vendors, we celebrated with live entertainment, celebrities, face painting presentations and folkloric Filipino dancing. The event was a huge success and brought awareness and recognition to the accomplishments and triumphs of the Filipino community.
October is recognized as Filipino American History Month (FAHM), where the contributions of the Filipino and Filipino American community are celebrated in the United States.
Jamila Tahir, Program Recruiter, stated, “We loved seeing the Filipino community come together for Filipino American History month and enjoyed being a part of this award winning event that the South Bay LA Filipino American Chamber of Commerce hosted. They were so wonderful to all of the vendors who attended and we are so proud to be part of such a great group!"
