From the Beverly Press:

The Los Angeles County Development Authority celebrated the end of the back to school season during the Back to School Bash at the Community Resource Center.

The festive evening included the distribution of school supplies, interactive games and resource booths for families.

At the event, 300 backpacks filled with notebooks, lined paper, pens pencils, markers, color pencils, and scissors were distributed to families. Families were also encouraged to participate in free haircuts from local vendor Comestica Latina and enjoy local resources available like the Delete the Divide Program, which offers online training classes in topics like cyber security, information technology, and computer programming. The Whittier Area Literacy Council displayed information about their free one-on-one tutoring programs and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health distributed information about its health education programs.

“The LACDA is proud of the community connections we have built,” executive director Emilio Salassaid. “Thanks to the CRC’s hard work, we had a productive Back to School Bash and families were able to receive the supplies they needed to make the first day back to school a success.”
