California Sikh Businessman Sandeep Singh Chahal was awarded on behalf of California Assembly here as a Community Hero which was presented by to him by Assembly member Kansan Chu for his excellent Volunteer services during the Covid-19 Pandemic.
This award ceremony was hosted as 6th Annual Community Hero Awards Ceremony at the San Jose City College Milpitas Extension (Parking Lot) located in Milpitas. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s ceremony was a “drive-through” for honorees and those who nominated them.
Speaking on this Occasion Mr. Chahal said that this award is for all members of his team who worked day and night along with their family members to serve the community during this Covid-19 Pandemic.
He said that we not served only to get this award but we only worked to follow the teachings of Great Gurus. Later Assembly member Kansan Chu presented a Plague and Certificate to Sandeep Singh Chahal.
The Community Hero Awards Ceremony is an annual tradition started by California Assembly and community awards are being presented by Assembly member Chu. He said that for the last five years, honorees were nominated because they dedicated their time and efforts to make our community a better place to live, work, play, and retire.
This year, COVID-19 has impacted our community tremendously, but with that impact, we have also seen a rise in the number of unsung heroes that dedicated their time to give back to the community. We have received the most amount of nominations this year as compared to previous years.
“I am so proud to represent a community that is home to so many selfless heroes,” said Assembly member Kansan Chu (D-Milpitas). “During a year when so many are struggling, I am so inspired to see those who have stepped out to help out.
These heroes are doing good deeds daily to help their friends, neighbors, and most of the time, people who they do not know. The pandemic has caused many challenges, but I am glad to be able to do one small thing to honor those who are lifting up our community.”
