Happy Village is an independent, non-profit charitable organization founded in 2001 devoted to promoting and understanding to increase public awareness of the issues of minority communities in the United States. The organization strives to ease their livings through a variety of charitable programs, including annual events such as Love Share charity bazaar, health fair, Peace & Harmony concert, Love Festival for children with disabilities, Winter jacket giveaway to Homeless, Love Share 5k/10k Run/Walk, Senior luncheon event, presidential volunteer awards night, free consultation on legal services, tax, medical, career and other areas, and even more events! The theme of the organization is that love and sharing brings members of the multi-ethic communities together of 1,000 children and individuals with disabilities, families, volunteers and sponsors from more than 30 churches and organizations! We will have more than 20 booths to provide food, which are voluntarily provided by local churches and organizations in an effort to serve the participants of Love Festival, to all attendees. The Love Festival pulls together America’s diverse communities around their shared concern for people with disabilities, their health, and creative education. Open to the public, the Love Festival attracts more than 1,000 attendees. As the Southern California’s leading event that integrates arts and sports with STEM education, the Love Festival demonstrates the importance of creativity and empathy for our children’s development. This event is hosted by Love Festival Organizing Committee: Happy Village, the Korea Daily, and Milal Mission. This year, Glory Church Jesus Christ is also joining us as the committee and sponsor.
