Annual Community Open House and School Supplies Drive - June 20

We hope you will join us Thursday, June 20, 2019, 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 July.


Thursday, June 20
5 p.m. - 7 p.m.

District Office of Assemblymember Richard Bloom

2800 28th Street, Suite 105
