Community Open House & School Supplies Drive – Rescheduled to August 1st

Wednesday, August 1, 2018

Due to the recent passing of his mother, Assemblymember Bloom’s Annual Community Open House & School Supplies Drive has been rescheduled to Wednesday, August 1, 2018. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding. 

We hope you will join us Wednesday, August 1st, along with fellow Assembly District 50 residents and business owners for an opportunity to learn about the services the District Office can provide you and to hear about the work the Assemblymember is doing on your behalf in Sacramento.

Donations of new backpacks and school supplies for the upcoming school year are greatly appreciated, but not required. Your donation of a new backpack or new school supplies reduces the financial burden to families and increases student readiness, leading to better educational outcomes. The items collected will be distributed to students at the Annual Hollywood Family Resource Fair in late August.
