Justin Herbert, Chargers Quarterback, visit Kid City in efforts to spread our mission and highlight our grant opportunity with Lowes!
We’re thrilled to share we’ve been selected as a Lowes Hometowns project! This project means so much to us because we can finally turn the breezeway next to Kid City into a communal space for all students, staff, and program activities!
Congratulations to Kid City on being the first Lowe’s Home Team x Lowe’s Hometowns collaborative project in Los Angeles with LA Chargers’ Quarterback, Justin Herbert and Kid City Hope Place!
During Justin Herbert's visit he met with students, shared greats words about Kid City, expressed gratitude for our efforts in the South LA community, and took a tour of the Kid City space, where he truly saw the the perspective of our students lives! Kid City's long-time friend and board member, Laura Cuellar, also attended the event as a representative of Kid City. A friend who has been with Kid City since the beginning and is one of the mavericks of our mission!
We’re excited to share that as a result of our local pitching efforts, three media outlets attended yesterday’s event, including CBS, CW (KTLA) and ABC!
- CBS shared the news in an evening segment where Justin Herbert said, “We’re here at Kid City with the Lowe’s Home Team working on The Breezeway project.” CBS Sports Central also posted the story on their Twitter, which has 2.3K followers
- KTLA shared the news in an afternoon segment, highlighting, “Herbert is tackling a different kind of project where the NFL star rolled up his sleeves in Downtown Los Angeles to help Kid City Hope Place prepare for its new Breezeway”
Thank you Justin Herbert for visiting Kid City and inspiring our students with your passion. We are so happy you chose to get to know Los Angeles through our eyes!
The breezeway project is student centered meaning students a part of this project will design the breezeway, choose a muralist, and more! Stay updated with our breezeway project blog!
