ECCANDC was proud to partner with Councilmember Marqueece Harris-Dawson, the Vet Center, County of Los Angeles Miliary Veteran Affairs, McDonalds, 7-Eleven and Dulan’s on Crenshaw to honor our veterans in advance of Memorial Day on May 18, 2019.
This was the first time that this event was held at an affordable housing facility at 1101 MLK Blvd. that houses veterans and other low income families. Reggie Jones Sawyer, our Assemblyman and Councilmember Marqueece Harris-Dawson and ECCANDC Board Members Ellen Pace and Reverend Campbell were on hand to greet our veterans. ECCANDC received a certificate of commendation from Councilmember Harris-Dawson for our work with veterans. Reverend Campbell led the group in prayer. US Vets brought in a quilt and other items to be raffled off. The VA was present to offer resources to veterans. Veterans were able to get free hair cuts.
