Local Community joins together to honor essential workers

The Cities of Los Alamitos and Seal Beach, and the Los Alamitos Unified School District are joining together to thank and honor essential workers.

The Red, White, Blue and YOU campaign was designed to show appreciation for the essential workers that are putting their own safety at risk in order to help serve their communities. Healthcare professionals, military personnel, firefighters, police officers, school employees, grocery and restaurant workers, the postal service, and bankers are working around the clock providing vital service to the communities throughout this crisis.

YOU as residents are encouraged to help honor our local heroes by displaying an American flag in your front yard, creating a Thank You sign to showcase in your window, and tying red, white, and blue ribbons around the trees in front of your house or business and throughout your neighborhood. Show your support and let everyone in the community know that we value their service and that we will get through this pandemic together.

“There are times where we are different cities or districts, and there are times when we are one community,” stated Los Alamitos City Manager Chet Simmons. “Along with the men and women on the frontlines, we are all in this fight together.”

“I am incredibly proud of this community,” said Seal Beach City Manager Jill Ingram. “I know the sacrifices that our essential workers are making. This showing of support will go a long way in letting them know they are appreciated.”

“Our staff sprang into action to get online school going for our kids, provide childcare for families of essential workers and distribute meals to those in need,” said Dr. Andrew Pulver, Superintendent of the Los Alamitos Unified School District. “On behalf of the Board of Education and administration, we wish to thank the unwavering dedication,
professionalism and commitment from our staff; they have remained determined and upbeat and truly demonstrate how, as a community, we are all Better Together in meeting this extraordinary challenge.”
