The new home of Bakersfield’s Mexican American Opportunity Foundation at 2130 Chester Ave. #200 is much reason to celebrate for its administrator Magda Menendez, who has made a career of helping others.
The proof hangs inside the walls of the new facility. Menendez proudly points to the collection of framed pictures of local residents who have gone through MAOF for vocational training, educational courses, work experience and more for greater opportunities in the workplace. On Friday, Menendez welcomed the public, community leaders, MAOF staff and students to a ribbon-cutting ceremony of the new nonprofit’s new home, which has more than 10,000 square feet and offers five classrooms for its programs and services.
Montebello, CA: Today, the Mexican American Opportunity Foundation hosted Congresswoman Linda Sanchez and National Council of La Raza President & CEO Janet Murguia
to call attention to two important tax credits that assist all low-income working Americans: The Earned Income Tax Credit and the Child Care Tax Credit.
Ms. Murguia spoke about how these two federal tax credits were helping to lift low-income working Americans out of poverty. Yet, she continued, they are being threatened with elimination because under current law, Congress needs to re-authorize them ever 2 to 3 years.
For decades, the Mexican American Opportunity Foundation has recognized the selfless contributions of individuals who share MAOF’s vision and values at its annual Aztec Awards Gala. MAOF invites you and your company to join us as we continue this tradition.
