Aguilar Continues ‘Job For A Day’ Tour at Goodwill Southern California

On Tuesday, Rep. Pete Aguilar continued his ‘Job For A Day’ Tour of the Inland Empire at the Goodwill Southern California in Rancho Cucamonga, where he worked sorting donations. Rep. Aguilar kicked off his tour in San Bernardino last month at Mitla Café. The tour will take Rep. Aguilar across California’s 31st Congressional District, where he will work different jobs at businesses throughout the community to connect with residents and learn more about local businesses and the communities they serve.

“I’m grateful to the Goodwill Southern California team for letting me join them to learn more about the work they do for our community,” said Rep. Aguilar. He continued, “I’m familiar with the incredible training programs and education opportunities that Goodwill provides, but to see it up close and learn the personal stories of the workers really put things in perspective. The work that Goodwill does, both as an immediate resource for those in need and as an outlet to help workers learn new skills and get back on their feet, is important for families in our region and many more across the country.”

Patrick McClenahan, Goodwill Southern California President and CEO stated, “We welcomed Congressman Aguilar’s visit to the Goodwill Southern California Rancho Cucamonga Retail Store as part of his Job For A Day program. We appreciate his strong support of Goodwill’s mission to Transform Lives Through The Power Of Work, providing education, job training, and work experience for those in our community with disabilities and disadvantages. We are impressed that the Congressman is taking the time to work and experience jobs up close in the community that he serves.” 

As a fourth-generation San Bernardino County resident, Rep. Aguilar understands the challenges that Inland Empire families face every day, and is committed to working with his colleagues in Congress to prioritize policies that will help grow the middle class. Rep. Aguilar will continue his Job For a Day Tour at a different local business in the coming weeks.
