Asiatown's Chinese Community Center a hub for virtual learning amid pandemic

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- The Chinese Community Center in Houston's Asiatown has become a bedrock of the community over the last 40 years.

While the center normally offers Chinese school, youth programs and classes for seniors, it has gone above and beyond during this pandemic.

The center helps kids by offering a space for them to sign on and complete virtual learning.

The center also helps seniors, who have been isolated for most of this year, with several virtual classes.
