The Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation is proud to announce the Jerry Weintraub Youth Garden, to be built at the LAFD’s Frank Hotchkin Memorial Training Center near Dodger Stadium. With every brick you buy, you’ll be helping to create a brighter future for at-risk youth in Los Angeles by supporting LAFD youth programs.
These include the LAFD Fire Cadet program, the FIRE Academy, and the Fire and EMS Magnet High Schools, where your contributions will help fund PE and classroom uniforms, textbooks, supplies, and curriculum development. Students who participate in these programs will learn more about fire service and the possibilities for a career as a firefighter or paramedic.
Why Buy a Brick?
With 96 percent allocated for salaries and benefits, the city’s budget only includes partial funding for youth programs. They remain in desperate need of such basics as recruitment materials and fundamental training equipment. Your support of the Jerry Weintraub Youth Garden is an investment not only in the positive future for LA’s young people, but in the safety and quality of life in our great city.
