Christmas Tree Giveaway

We are grateful for the opportunity to give back to our community!

Each year, we hand out around 400 trees to families in our community. I believe Christmas is meant to be a time of joy and cheer, yet families often have to choose between a Christmas tree, gifts, or basic necessities. Thanks to my staff, volunteers, and our generous donors, we are able to annually facilitate this event this for those most in need.

Columbian Flag Raising

Honoring history...

We are honored to celebrate our Columbian community!


Serving to highlight the Battle of Boyacá, a key moment in Columbia's fight towards independence, I host this flag raising in August.

Leadership Event

Celebrating our East San José Leaders

An annual recognition of the leadership within our community. My office aims to honor members of the community who have lived and embodied the ideals of servant leadership by leading from the heart, and using their talents, gifts and leadership ability to make a better future for the entire community.

In 2021, we took things virtual, and celebrated community through zoom.

Mexican Flag Raising

Que Viva Mexico!

We are proud to represent the diversity of this beautiful city, and annually celebrate Mexican Independence day by showing our pride and sharing our culture with the world!

From hosting the iconic Los Tigres del Norte to a night of dancing & singing, we love sharing our rich Mexican history and culture with the City of San José.

National Night Out

Together we build community!

Each year, thousands from East San José come together to observe National Night Out. 

This festive day serves to connect neighborhoods with public safety officials and non-profits to build a better community. Together with the help of our sponsors, we feed over thousands of community members, provide backpacks for our children, and put on a stellar event.

Regularly held at Emma Prusch Farm Park.

Pancake Breakfasts


A quarterly (and delicious) event, these Pancake Breakfasts hold space with the hope that everyone can meet their neighbors and discuss issues impacting our East San José neighborhoods.
