LOS ANGELES -California-based businessman, Sandeep Singh Chahal, was awarded on behalf of the California Assembly on October 2 as a ‘Community Hero’. The award was presented to him by Assembly member Kansan Chu for his volunteer services during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The award ceremony was hosted as the 6th Annual Community Hero Awards Ceremony at the San Jose City College Milpitas Extension (Parking Lot) located in Milpitas. Due to Covid-19 pandemic, this year’s ceremony was a ‘drive-through’ for honourees and those who nominated them.

Speaking on the occasion Chahal said the award was for all members of his team who worked day and night along with their family members to serve the community during the Covid-19 pandemic.

He said that we not served only to get this award but to follow the teachings of great Gurus. Later assembly member Kansan Chu presented a plaque and certificate to Sandeep Singh Chahal.

The community hero awards ceremony is an annual tradition started by California Assembly and community awards are being presented by assembly member Chu. He said for the last five years, honourees were nominated because they dedicated their time and efforts to make the community a better place to live, work, play, and retire. This year, Covid-19 has impacted our community tremendously, but with that impact, we have also seen a rise in the number of unsung heroes that dedicated their time to give back to the community.”

We have received the most amount of nominations this year as compared to previous years. “I am so proud to represent a community that is home to so many selfless heroes,” said assembly member Kansan Chu.
