Kick off Saturday Morning with Assemblymember Cristina Garcia for a “Walk n’ Talk” in Downey

For immediate release:

(Bell Gardens) -- Assemblymember Cristina Garcia invites everyone to join her for monthly community “Walk and Talk” Saturday, December 6, 8:00am, at Wilderness Park, 10999 Little Lake Road in Downey.

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 the Arc, a private non-profit organization serving over 400 individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  This organization has been serving the community for over 58 years.  The Arc Los Angeles & Orange Counties is a part of the extended Arc family made up of 700 chapters nationwide.

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 flag pole by the parking lot 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.

For further information, please call Assemblymember Garcia’s office at (562) 861-5803.
