Assets in Action: August is Assets month

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

Welcome to Assets month. That’s right, the month of August will be proclaimed Asset building month for 2012.
The Los Alamos County Council will issue a formal proclamation at their meeting Aug. 7.
The truth is, a lot of hard work goes into this program and to have the work recognized by the County Council, means a great deal.
This work is a combined effort of both the Juvenile Justice Advisory Board and Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce and runs throughout the community.
We do a lot of work with Los Alamos Public Schools, and for that I am grateful. This year, we will have Asset Ambassadors at each site, with a variety of resources at their fingertips for staff and families.
Now, I need to rally the community to embed this work much deeper. I need to identify community members willing to host trainings, help work on community strategies or be ambassadors in the community.
Due to a straining economy, the Assets budget has been reduced by $5,000, but we still intend to do even more with less.
Smith’s Food and Drug has stepped up to do a Change for Change coin drive during August, which is a great way to help further our work in the community.
It allows me to demonstrate that even a few coins left over from your purchase will make a big difference in our work.
