Hold Each Other
Mr. Kim learned the value of education as a young child in South Korea in the early 1950s. As North Korean forces moved into his homeland, he and his family, along with many others, were forced to leave their homes. Mr. Kim remembers with great gratitude the education he received at temporary schools run by American missionaries. He leads his life in appreciation of the efforts of the dedicated teachers that opened doors for him throughout his life.
Mr. Kim began BP Industries, Inc. in 1986, a company specializing in the international trade of consumer products. BP is now one of the premier home-decor vendors in the U.S. In 2003, to further his desire to help those in need of assistance accomplish their life goals, Mr. Kim founded the DK Kim Foundation Inc. (a 501(c)3 organization). The Foundation fights poverty and promotes innovation through entrepreneurship, scholarship, and service.
