YMCA of San Francisco and Dokkaebier are proud to announce a collaboration for Asian heritage month. 10% of all sales is donated to the YMCA of San Francisco to be specifically used by the Asian Pacific Islander Leadership Network to use towards resources and support to our AAPI elder communities around safety, New American Immigrant Center, and to stop AAPI hate in our communities.
