Montbello Alive!

Celebrating the resilience of the Montbello community. In September of every year the Montbello Community comes together to celebrate our diversity, togetherness and ability to work together to accomplish our goals! 

COVID-19 tossed our community into the fire and only underscored issues we’ve been tackling for decades. We’ve lost so many young people due to gun violence, seen increased education inequality, lack of healthy food access, housing insecurity, and so much more. Within all this chaos though, we have seen our community step up in a beautiful way. Neighbors began hosting major food distributions, sourcing and soliciting mental health services, working with young people to host fun, safe events… supporting each other.

This is resilience.

This event would have not been made possible without your generosity and support. Together we fed our neighbors, connected one another to resources, lifted each other up, and so much more.
