National Night Out

On Tuesday, August 6, 2013 LASPA, along with LASPA Cares for Kids participated in the East Los Angeles community National Night Out. This event was hosted through the East Los Angeles Sheriff’s Station, and many community programs and vendors participated in order to show support for our local communities. For the past four years, LASPA has been actively participating in this event, since we feel that it is important to reach out to our community.

At this year’s event, LASPA staff was on hand interacting with members of our local community and handing out fun filled goody bags to the children that came out. The goody bags were filled with lots of fun toys, snacks, and safety awareness brochures. Also, for this event, LASPA funded entertainment for the children. It is always with great pleasure that LASPA actively participates and supports programs like this, which gives us the opportunity to bring joy to people in our community.

Adult Transition Program - (LIFT)


Dear LASPA,

LASPA CARE FOR KIDS! Thank you for donating the water bottles. We really like them! The clip helps us take the bottles wherever we go. We take them on our walks in the community, to the Y.M.C.A, and to our volunteer work sites. The reusable bottles will help us to take care of the environment because we won't be using so many plastic bottles. We've also learned that the metal bottles are healthier for us than the plastic bottles. We are enjoying using our new bottles.

Thank you again!

With great appreciation,
LIFT: Learning Independence For Transition
