CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A woman of great integrity and honor, Sang Sananikone who owns Imperial Cafe on Corona Drive has always believed in giving back to the community. At the beginning of the pandemic, Sang decided to cook meals and give them to the community for free.

“That is what God wants us to be," Sang said. "He wants us to give back, when we receive, we give back.”

Although the pandemic has also been hard on her, she has never denied helping anyone who may need it. Sang went from having 30 employee's pre-pandemic to only eight, and even had to reduce the hours of her establishment. Even at that, she continues to help those in need.

“When I can use my time to make food on my own from scratch and see people excited and appreciate it," Sang said, "it makes me more excited."

Sang said that she will continue to help those in need while also making sure everyone who visits her restaurant feels right at home.

Because of all of this, Sang was nominated as a KRIS 6 angel.
