As the holiday season quickly approaches, I look forward to spending time with my wife, our children, and family friends. At the same time, I’m aware that many people in Orange County are less fortunate. If you or your family needs assistance this holiday season, there are numerous organizations that can help. Below you will find just a few that are graciously serving the 34th district.
I will also be hosting my annual Holiday Open House on Wednesday, December 8, 2010 from 4:00PM to 6:00pm at my District Office in Santa Ana. Come meet other Orange County residents and bring your ideas for how to make our community even better. For more information or to RSVP, call (714) 558-4400 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Or click here to RSVP on Facebook.
Have a wonderful holiday season.
