Annual Community Reception & Canned Food, Blanket & Sock Drive - Nov 19
Join us for our Annual District Office Open House on Tuesday, November 19th, for light snacks, refreshments and friendly discussion on the issues affecting our state and communities. This event coincides with our annual Canned/Packaged Food, Blanket & Sock Drive!!
Canned food items collected will benefit Westside Food Bank which has served as the food bank warehouse for the Westside since 1981, distributing 4.5 million pounds of food annually to over 70 local social service agencies serving much of the 50th Assembly District.
Blankets and socks collected will benefit Daniel's Place, a project of Step Up on Second, created as a drop-in center for transitional age youth who are experiencing mental health conditions and who may or may not be experiencing homelessness, and today, remains steadfast in its efforts to promote early intervention and education in order to reduce the likelihood of the effects of a mental health issue becoming a persistent and disabling condition.
We hope you will consider bringing a donation of any non-perishable foods, blankets (new or gently used) or socks(new) with you to the event, but donations are not required. You can also drop items off at our office anytime before the event.
Please RSVP for the event below. We look forward to seeing you!
