The Pomona Economic Opportunity Center on June 27 honored Supervisor Hilda L. Solis at its annual fundraiser.
“Whenever community groups help our most vulnerable – our undocumented immigrants, our children or working-class families struggling to put food on the table – I praise these grassroots organizations,” Supervisor Solis said. “The residents of the First District are compassionate individuals who believe in a sense of community. Day laborers have a strong work ethic
“I was delighted to join the Pomona Economic Opportunity Center at its fundraiser and to support its efforts,” Supervisor Solis said. “It is a hard-working community organization affecting meaningful change in the lives of so many men and women.”
Since the center’s founding in 1998, it has provided work and job development for countless day laborers in the Pomona Valley. In the fall of 2015, the nonprofit will launch a Women Workers’ Program.
