Written by: Alexandra Huynh, Miss Entrepreneur 2016 On June 25, 2016, Quan, Savannah, Y, Jullianne, and I donated clothes and volunteered at Sacred Heart Community Service in San Jose. This charity provides resources and services to poor working families such as clothes, food, parenting classes, and preschool education.
