Thousands of Dollars Still Available as Part of Lancaster Choice Energy’s Grocery Workers Appreciation Program
The City Urges Grocery Workers to Apply for the Utility Bill Rebate as the Deadline Gets Closer

Lancaster, CA. July 22, 2020 – The City of Lancaster launched the Grocery Workers Appreciation Program in recognition of Lancaster’s frontline grocery workers serving the public during the COVID-19 pandemic. Under this program, eligible grocery workers who are customers of Lancaster Choice Energy (LCE) will receive a one-time credit of up to $50 on their LCE charges for total funds of $50,000. Thousands of dollars are still available and the City urges individuals to apply before the deadline on August 30th.

It is important for the City to be able to distribute the funds completely to properly thank local grocery workers. “Our community has seen countless heroes step up to serve during this unprecedented crisis,” said Mayor R. Rex Parris. “Undoubtedly, when they selected this career, most grocery workers never anticipated finding themselves on the front lines of a global pandemic. With the Grocery Workers Appreciation Program, we aim to provide a small token of our appreciation for the grocery store employees who diligently provide our community’s essential needs throughout the ongoing public health crisis.”

The First Cohort of Graduates from the GOOD+LIFE Manufacturing Training Program
Program Partners Include the City of Lancaster, L.A. County Office of Education, L.A. County Department of Public Social Services, and the L.A. County Homeless Initiative

Lancaster, CA. July 23, 2020 – This week, the GOOD+LIFE Manufacturing Training Program (GOOD+LIFE) – a Lost Angels Children’s Project (LACP) social enterprise, in partnership with the City of Lancaster, L.A. County Office of Education (LACOE), L.A. County Department of Public Social Services (DPSS), and the L.A. County Homeless Initiative – graduated nine students.

Similar to other recent graduations, the ceremony included a virtual and drive-through ceremony. Masks and social distancing measures were in place and, of course, a typical photo opportunity for each graduate. But, that is the only thing typical about this innovative program.

GOOD+LIFE is a key homelessness prevention strategy in the City’s Homelessness Plan. It recognizes that many Transitional Aged Youth (TAY) attempting to progress into independent living and adulthood experience barriers associated with shelter and employment causing them to end up homeless. The program combats this by offering vocational training, professional skills, and paid apprenticeships for TAY, ages 18 to 25, who are currently experiencing or are at risk of homelessness and/or unemployment.
