I’m a lifelong resident of Alhambra and having a local newspaper, like Alhambra Source, is very important to me. It’s the only way to know the issues that will directly affect my day to day, where I live. That’s why I decided to support Alhambra Source with a monthly donation.

Efren Moreno, Former Alhambra Mayor

Thank you Alhambra Source for truly informing the residents of Alhambra.

Jeff Maloney, Alhambra City Council Member

The Source has become an important source for news, public interest, and serious journalism in our community. Keep it up!

Chris Olson

I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Adele Andrade Stadler, Alhambra Mayor

The Source is a great independent newspaper that celebrates the communities and is not afraid to ask the tough questions!

Cliff Bender, Vice President, Alhambra Education Foundation

Alhambra Source is the ONLY independent news source covering the events, culture and government of our city. We need it to stay informed and aware!

We support Alhambra Source because this online news source is vitally important in engaging, informing and educating the residents of Alhambra.

I support the Alhambra Source because journalism will always be part of that fourth branch of our democracy. The Alhambra Source provides me with news that helps me make informed decisions about issues that matter to me and my community. Thank you for the work you do.

Alhambra , CA United States

Last month, 1st grade Monterey Highlands Elementary School student Shawn Li drew a colorful rainbow set in Alhambra. Alongside his sister and mother, Shawn looked around Alhambra Park for inspiration as both children participated in the Alhambra Source bookmark making competition at the 2nd Annual Alhambra Teacher’s Association Read Across America event.

Shawn’s drawing, the winner of the contest which had over 50 submissions, will be printed on the opposite side of the next edition of the Alhambra Source bookmark. His prize for participation and artistic craft is a “We Love Alhambra” balloon, an Alhambra Source decal, and a gift card to be used for school supplies. 

The Alhambra Source contest and the ATA event was made in part to support civic engagement and literacy in within Alhambra by getting kids excited about reading. With book giveaways, reading hubs led by community leaders, live music, and a plethora of other engaging activities, hundreds of students enjoyed an afternoon with local educators, community groups, and school administration representatives.

Congratulations Shawn and we will see you at the next Alhambra Source contest!
