Made 1,000 Meals For Hurricane Victims – Gets No Attention In The Media
In August of 2017, the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey could be felt across Southern Texas. The category 4 hurricane left its mark by sweeping away almost everything within its path. In the wake of devastation, Harvey, which claimed at least 50 lives, forced thousands of residents to flee their demolished homes and communities. The storm left numerous people with no choice but to rebuild their lives over from scratch. While it’s said it can take years to rebuild these towns and surrounding affected areas, it has not stopped people from taking the opportunity to give back to their communities during their time in need. The aftermath and outpouring of people who came together after Hurricane Harvey was no exception.
It’s during these times where true heroes emerge from the shadows aiding in comfort and salvation to those in need. These heroes are noted for courageous acts of nobility and character and often are disguised within our own neighbors. While there are many stories of the bravery and compassion of America’s emergency personnel, volunteers, and numerous first responders, these stories only begin to scratch the surface of the best of America. In the aftermath of this storm, communities became united and strangers came to each other’s aid.
Sake Sushi Bar and Lounge owners Phe Nguyen and Binh Nguyen in Port Arthur Texas, watched the disaster unfold within their community. They knew then that no matter what, they would contribute however they could to aid in helping their community. Their mission; to provide hurricane victims with a delicious meal no matter what it takes. In just one day they provided thousands of food boxes to supply those in need.
Though the unsung heroes of Sake Sushi Bar and Lounge were unphased by not receiving any media attention for their efforts, Phe Nguyen’s son, Keith felt his father and the hard-working staff at Sake Sushi Bar and Lounge deserved to be acknowledged. Not only for their tireless efforts but for their noble give back to the community, Keith went to Facebook sharing his message of recognition and praise for the restaurant and its staff:
But Keith was not expecting the widespread result of what happened next. The post about their inspiring story was not only recognized but went viral being shared over 444,000 times and receiving over a million interactions worldwide!
In a time where lives were lost, families left shocked, and neighbors huddled in shelters awaiting relief, the efforts of those who stand strong to provide for those in need should never go unnoticed, as their impact is felt to all those affected. This story among countless other heroes during the relief strategies taken place from Hurricane Harvey reminds us that it’s true, not all heroes wear a cape.
