MANAGEMENT SERVICES

BURGERS IN THE BRASS

Nothing brings people together like breaking bread, forging new connections over a shared meal.

The City of Temple City and Temple Sheriff’s Station puts that old adage into action by hosting a free Burgers and the Brass event for the community on January 16, 6:00 -8:00 p.m. in the City Hall Community Room, 9701 Las Tunas Dr.

The event hopes to begin conversations and strengthen connections between community members and local law enforcement in a casual setting—over burgers. It’s a perfect combo (meal).

Temple City-based catering company, 2 Fat Kids, will furnish burgers and sides. A vegetarian option will be available.

Reservations are required for the free meal. For more information and to reserve a spot, contact Iliana Flores at (626) 285-2171, ext. 4111 or iflores@templecity.us.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR THE 2020 GREATER LOS ANGELES HOMELESS COUNT

The City of Temple City is seeking 20 more volunteers to partake in its 2020 Homeless Street Count, which will occur January 21 from 8:00 p.m. - 11:00 p.m. (possibly as late as midnight). The annual count, organized by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA), gathers information to determine and request how much federal funding is needed for homeless services programs, both countywide and in the San Gabriel Valley. Work to be done by volunteers is considered a passive count. Volunteers will not approach or engage the homeless for safety reasons. A mandatory one-hour training will be held the night of the count in the Community Room located at 9701 Las Tunas Drive. All volunteers are asked to arrive with a fully charged cell phone and some may be asked to drive with one or more volunteers. For more information and to register CLICK HERE >>
