At its 18th Annual Image Awards on October 2, OCA-Greater Los Angeles bestowed its Community Service Award to out-going FCC president Jeri Okamoto Floyd. The award honors Jeri’s leadership in guiding FCC–Los Angeles from a fledgling chapter to a thriving nonprofit charitable organization. Jeri helped integrate the FCC adoption community with the broader Asian Pacific American community by establishing cultural interactive programs such as the award-winning FCC-SoCal/China Care Bruins Buddy Program, which pairs FCC kids (6 to teens) with UCLA student mentors for monthly activities.

Our very own China Care Bruins Club at UCLA has been honored by the national China Care Foundation, receiving the First Annual “Outstanding Community Service: Mentoring Program” Award.
Those of us who have been participating in the Bruin Buddy Program know that our Big Buddies are terrific and run a great program – but it is wonderful for the students to receive national recognition for their innovative efforts to empower our kids and to be the example for other China Care chapters. Go Bruins!
