The Alhambra Educational Foundation was one of eight organizations and individuals honored Dec. 6 by Assemblymember Ed Chau (D-Monterey Park) with the Make a Difference award for their dedication and commitment to improving the quality of life for residents in the community. The award ceremony took place during the Assemblymember’s annual Holiday Toy Drive in San Gabriel.
“Our community role-models are men, women, and organizations that have dedicated themselves to serving others and been actively involved in local civic affairs,” said Mr. Chau. “Their professional and personal dedication to issues, such as mental health, education, and child-welfare is inspirational and should be recognized by all of us.”
Family, friends, and neighbors also met with the Assemblymember during the Holiday Toy Drive to discuss legislative issues, services, and programs offered by the district office and to celebrate the holiday season. All toys collected were donated to non-profit organizations for distribution to families in need within the 49th District.
