For whatever reason, there were half as many kids in attendance as the previous two years so accommodating Team EAA’s honored guests, the kids of Harbor Interfaith Services, was an easy task. Team EAA set up games for the kids to play as well as prizes to win and treats to eat.

The 2018 Mini-Fair at Harbor Interfaith Services was an absolute success thanks to the contributions from Jersey Mike’s Subs and the commitments of Team EAA:

  • Brenna Green (Office Administrator)
  • Marleen Fonseca (Sr. Labor Representative)
  • Mark Santistevan (MOU  21 Governor)
  • Sandra Valenti (Office Accountant)
  • Malcolm Davies (Communication Coordinator)

Last but not least, we would also like to acknowledge EAA’s members whose voluntary dues make community outreach initiatives such as this Mini Fair possible for the kids. Below is photo coverage of last Friday’s EAA Outreach in Joe Buscaino’s Council District 15 in San Pedro, California.
