No matter the challenges we have had to endure this past year, we will come out on the other side of this crisis stronger and braver, holding onto the ideals that even in our darkest hours, the shining examples of humanity could not be dulled.
In a time when the world stopped, we kept going. From our efforts to combat the homelessness crisis to our response to COVID-19, we set our boots to the ground to help support the South LA community.

Team Price wishes you a Happy New Year and an abundance of good health, peace, love and prosperity.
Although the way we celebrate the holidays this year is vastly different than ever before, nothing could stand in the way of Team Price’s yearly tradition of distributing toys and bikes to thousands of local children. This year, instead of being face to face, we held a first of its kind, drive-thru toy giveaway in District 9 on Dec. 19 at my District Office. The one thing that remains constant was the joy through the eyes of our children. Take a look at the photos here and you’ll feel the warmth and hope of the season.
While our Winter Wonderland community event, where we distributed toys, baby clothes and groceries and which included social distancing protocols, was our main event of 2020, my staff and I were able to spread love and cheer to the community all month long. I want to express my sincere appreciation to our valued partners for their generosity, which allowed us to maintain a sense of normalcy in these perilous times. Thank you to Balfour Beatty, California Resources Corporation, Destination Enterprises, eaze, Fluor, HNTB, Northgate Gonzalez Market, Soledad Enrichment Action, TEC, Union Bank, and others for being there for our families. Through their support, we participated in the dissemination of thousands of toys, diapers, boxes of food, personal protective equipment and other supplies, across events districtwide this December.
As we approach the end of a most-challenging year, we can reflect on a chapter that taught us a great many lessons while showcasing our resolve, perseverance and dedication to one another. Our strength was put to the test but it did not waver under the pressure, ensuring the foundation we have laid will continue to lift us up during the times we need it the most.
Happy Holidays! Team Price wishes you and your family good health and happiness in the New Year ahead.
During the month of December, the Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) made several improvements along Avalon Boulevard in District 9. LADOT crews installed raised bus platforms at the boulevard's intersections including Manchester Avenue, Slauson Avenue, and 59th, 60th, 61st, and 76th streets. Installed adjacent to bus stops, these new platforms allow easier access for passengers who board and exit buses while also providing inclined sides for use by bicyclists, who may ride up and over the platforms, which are contiguous with the Avalon Boulevard bike lanes.
