DIVERSEcity & Hannam Supermarket Lunar New Year Celebration
Learning & Shopping Together
THU, January 30, 2014 (3:00pm-6:00pm)
Hannam Supermarket (100-15357 104 Ave, Surrey)
Celebrating Lunar New Year, DIVERSEcity Community Resources Society and Hannam Supermarket in Surrey will host a one day “Learning & Shopping together” event on January 30, 2014.
Celebrating 35 years serving immigrant & refugee populations, DIVERSEcity and Hannam Supermarket, celebrating its 15th anniversary, are planning this new lunar New Year event to provide opportunities for learning through visiting this Korean ethnic market. There will be opportunities for tasting Chinese Fortune cookies and Korean traditional foods but also to learn the ease of accessing the services for career building and volunteering at the on-site booth.
The event starts at 3:00pm inside of Hannam Supermarket, and a prize draw for two free career building courses at DIVERSEcity’s Skills Training Centre will take place ($200-300 value) as well as on site volunteer application submission, overview of available services those over 55 years and older will be conducted by a Better at Home Program Coordinator.
Myung Lee, Marketing Coordinator at DIVERSEcity states that “as a Korean-Canadian, I think that this event would be beneficial for those who have been interested in Korean culture, not knowing where they should go, at the same time those new immigrants who really would like to make big progress in 2014, yet not knowing what kinds of help or resource they get from DIVERSEcity.”
Seongki Kim, Manager at Surrey Hannam Supermarket, said that “We did a partnership program with DIVERSEcity before, it turned out well. By having this event, we would like to see more people to come to know about lunar New Year, as city of Surrey becomes more diverse as we have more than 20% customer are non-Koreans.”
