Community Meeting with Sunnyvale Dept. of Public Safety
On occasion of Raksha Bandhan, we recently conducted a community meeting with Sunnyvale Dept. of Public Safety. The 1 hour meeting meeting comprised of us giving an overview of HSS and our activities, Raksha Bandhan and its significance, Universal Oneness Day, followed by an engaging talk and Q&A with Officer Joseph Ochoa from Sunnyvale DPS. Our shakha Balas and Shishus had made Thank You cards for the Policemen and Firefighters and in the end they were shared with the Officer. He was really touched to see the heartfelt, innocent, cute and funny messages painstakingly prepared by our kids and became quite emotional and almost had tears in his eyes. He expressed that when there are many questions being raised about the actions of Policemen based on some recent events, it is really heartening to see the genuine love and respect that he was witnessing. 50+ kids along with their families and Yuva attended the event.
