Tuesday, September 17, 2013

(Kettleman City, CA) - Assemblymember Rudy Salas (D - Bakersfield) helped deliver a back-to-school surprise to dozens of families in Kettleman City. Assemblymember Salas worked with community groups and leaders to deliver hundreds of pairs of donated new shoes to children at the Kings Community Action Organization in Kettleman City. "These kids were walking to school with no sidewalks and worn down shoes. We were able to change that for a lot of families today," Assemblymember Salas said. Kettleman City has a high rate of unemployment at almost 25% and a low median household income. Here's more about the project in this Assembly Access video.
