Rep. Linda Sánchez (CA-38) and Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe invite veterans and military families from across the 38th Congressional District to attend a Veterans Resource Fair at Liberty Plaza in Whittier on September 22:
“This Veterans Resource Fair provides access to a number of key services such as housing programs, employment training opportunities, and other resources available for our veterans and their families in one convenient location,” said Rep. Linda Sánchez. “It is great to host this event at the new and beautiful Liberty Community Plaza since it was designed in part to honor our local veterans. I want to thank Supervisor Don Knabe and his office for their assistance and support of this event. We are proud to work together to ensure our veterans receive the benefits they have earned through their service to our nation.
“Whether it is hosting these kinds of events or providing assistance with backlogged VA claims, my office is always here to help all those who served our country in uniform,” concluded Rep. Linda Sánchez.
“Just a few short months ago, we opened Liberty Plaza to the community and I am thrilled that we are quickly providing services to our veterans,” said Supervisor Knabe. “These resource fairs provide invaluable information on a wide variety of concerns that our veterans and their families have. I want to thank Congresswoman Sanchez for being there with us from the beginning – to ensure that the men and women who have sacrificed so much for all of us are provided the programs and services they deserve.”
