Bell Gardens) -- Assemblymember Cristina Garcia invites everyone to join her for monthly community "Walk and Talk" Saturday, November 1, 8:00am, at Ford Park, 8000 Park Lane in Bell Gardens.
The walk is an informal setting for the community to catch up, share ideas, build and expand on our community circles. During the stroll, all walkers will have an opportunity to ask questions about Assemblymember Garcia's legislative package, discuss issues local of importance and learn about services offered through her Downey District Office.
Special community guest will be Lideres De Bell Gardens, a Women's leadership group from the community. Last year, as an organization they helped raise awareness on child and infant abuse by sharing research and giving presentations to members of the community. Each year Lideres de Bell Gardens selects a new topic by surveying residents and parents to meet the community's interest.
To help those in need, Assemblymember Garcia's office will be taking donations that morning of new socks and underwear and travel sized toiletries (toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, etc.) that will be distributed to the homeless and those in need.
Walkers are asked to meet at the front of the Recreation Department Building at 8:00am, sharp.
This community walk is part of series of Saturday walks that are being held in cities throughout the 58th Assembly District.
