Read Whittier Union High School District's newsletter highlighting the Cesar Chavez Day of Service by clicking on the image below. We had a great discussion regarding Cesar Chavez's legacy and art activism with Anthony Chavez, Cesar Chavez's grandson. Thank you to Puente Staff, Melinda Martinez and Josefina Canchola, for leading the conversation and partnering with WUHSD for this event!


Dear Puente Familia,


Thank you so much for participating in this year's Big Give. Because of you, we exceeded our fundraising goal! We raised $18,090 and received a $10,000 match in honor of Marie and Manuel Loya. All funds will go towards Puente scholarships across our programs.


For every $25 donated, donors were entered into a raffle for a chance to win a Puente gift bag. Donors making a major gift of $500 and above were entered to win a beautiful collector’s print from artist, Malaquias Montoya. Congratulations to the raffle winners!

Again, we thank you for all your support!


With Gratitude,

Puente Statewide Office
