Over the past three weeks, Team Price has been out in full force getting the word out to the community about the opportunity for District 9 neighbors aged 65 and older, as well as health care workers, to get a COVID-19 vaccine at local parks.
The vaccination pop-up sites at South Park Recreation Center, Green Meadows Recreation Center and most recently Vermont Square Park have been brought to CD 9 in collaboration with Councilmember Curren Price, the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) with the support of CORE (Community Organized Relief Effort).
To date, the grassroots initiative is responsible for helping to get more than 2,000 seniors from the District vaccinated with no signs of slowing down.
Supported by Councilmember Curren Price, 10 students from Holmes Avenue Elementary School were treated on Thursday, Feb. 25 to a special outdoor movie night hosted by the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles, LAPD Community Safety Partnership (CSP) Officers and the Pueblo Del Rio public housing community.
To create a full on movie-going experience, the local children received a movie ticket admitting them into the Alba Center. During the showing of Peter Pan, the students also enjoyed popcorn, candy bags, chips and beverages.
The students selected were rewarded for their academic excellence during distance learning, including arriving on time to their zoom classes, turning in their homework on time and being actively engaged during class.
Great job, students! Team Price joins our local partners in acknowledging your efforts during a most extraordinary time.
For more than two decades, Angels Walk LA Historical Trails has brought self-guided walking activities designed to enhance the pedestrian experience in the City. The District 9 community is invited to a special journey exploring the deep rich history embedded along the Central Avenue corridor.
