Toiletries Giveaway (3,000 Packages)

In partnership with The Hispanic Star, we hosted a toiletries giveaway (3,000 packages) in Pacoima and Sylmar last weekend. During these challenging times, it’s important that we come together as a community to address the needs of those most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. For many families and individuals financially strained by job loss, small gestures such as receiving laundry detergent, soap, and diapers can make a tremendous impact on keeping them healthy.

A special thanks to the Department Of Transportation and to the LAPD Foothill Division for providing traffic assistance — and to the Captains for stopping by to meet members of our community and distribute supplies.

If you or someone you know is in need of housing, education, or other services, please contact my office at (213) 473-7007.

Incredible Community Partner, Khalsa Care Foundation
Incredible Community Partner, Khalsa Care Foundation

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had an incredible community partner, Khalsa Care Foundation. From the start this crisis, they and other members of the Pacoima Sikh community, worked to quickly develop a hot meals program; one which would expand to include city-wide food distribution. Over the course of several months, they have served tens of thousands of meals residents with disabilities and those enduring financial hardship.

Last week, we once again partnered with Khalsa Care Foundation, to distribute backpacks and food packages that include bread, produce, cheese, milk, and COVID-19 masks to roughly 500 families in our district.

Join me in expressing gratitude for charitable organizations like Khalsa Care Foundation who have shown generosity to our community during these unprecedented times.
