Recently, Fairfield's World Champion Taekwondo held a food drive to help stock Operation Hope's Food Pantry shelves. WCT strives to teach its students important values which will not only help them achieve higher ranks in Taekwondo, but also will stay with them and help them their entire life. We are grateful to Master Kwangjin Ha, the students, staff and families of WCT for keeping these guiding principles top of mind by reaching out to help those most in need in our community. Because of you, many families and individuals Operation Hope serves will be able to put food on their family table.

We are grateful to owner George Chatzopoulos, manager Adam Bajko and Chip's staff, as they are donating their time.
