Week of Los Al
Join us in celebrating Los Alamitos with the MemorialCare Miller Children’s & Women’s Hospital Long Beach “Week of Los Al” presented by Southland Credit Union. The week kicks off with Serve Los Al, a citywide volunteer service event on September 10 & 11. Roll up your sleeves and give back to your community by serving at one of the local non-profits or help a senior resident in need of assistance. Projects can be viewed at www.servelosal.org. Volunteers and the community are invited to the Serve Los Al Assembly on Saturday, September 11 at 8:15 a.m. at Little Cottonwood Park. A special 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony will take place to commemorate the 20th anniversary. After the ceremony, volunteers will disperse to their volunteer sites and enjoy camaraderie in serving their community at various locations throughout the City.
