Bienvenidos participated at a back to school event at one of LA County’s housing communities last week. The Los Angeles County Housing Authority strives daily to assist families in need, with their ultimate goal being to build better lives and better neighborhoods. Along with several other agencies, Bienvenidos joined the effort to inform the 300 residents about community programs and other options that would enhance their lives and ensure a healthier future. In addition, over 300 backpacks were given away, residents received free hair cuts, participated in a raffle and received a free hot dog lunch.
To our surprise and delight, the event was honored by an appearance by California Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard. The Back to School Jam was a definite success and all of the children who participated are prepared to take on the new school year.Story Credit: Rosalba Torres
