On July 26, 2017, my office will host our Annual Community Open House and School Supplies Drive at my district office in Santa Monica.
Join me, my district office staff, and fellow Assembly District 50 residents and business owners for a fun social event to learn more about the services my district office can provide you and to hear about the work I’m doing in Sacramento.
In coordination with the Youth Policy Institute, we will be collecting donations of new backpacks and school supplies for the upcoming school year. The purchase of new clothing and school supplies can be an overwhelming financial burden for any family, but lower-income families that are already struggling each month to provide for their families are particularly at risk. Your donation of a new backpack or new school supplies reduces this burden and increases student readiness, leading to better educational outcomes. Items collected will be distributed to students at our Hollywood Family Resource Fair.
