Elba Alonso de Ortega

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!

Joyce & Oscar Amaro, Alhambra Preservation Group

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

Jose Aguayo

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.

Michael Lawrence, Alhambra Arts Commissioner

Keep bringing on the stories. The Source has given us so much and I am happy to donate to such an important part of our community.

* WHITE ELEPHANT GIFT EXCHANGE RULES
(Please read; if you bring a gift, you are acknowledging the rules listed below)
To participate in the White Elephant Gift Exchange all you have to do is bring a wrapped gift that is valued at $10 or more. The gift must be a collectible toy, brand-new and/or an unopened item with no significant damage to its box. When selecting your White Elephant Gift, be sure to get something someone may want to steal! That’s right… STEAL!
Here’s how the White Elephant Gift Exchange works…
The participants of the White Elephant Gift Exchange will draw numbers starting with 1 and up to the total number of participants.
Once the order has been established, each person takes his or her turn choosing a gift.
The 1st participant opens a gift from the pile and then shows it to everyone.
The next player can either “steal” an already opened gift or be adventurous and go for a wrapped gift from the pile.
If the participant chooses to steal an unwrapped gift, the person whose gift was stolen now repeats their turn and either steals another person’s gift (they cannot immediately steal back the gift that was just stolen from them) or they can unwrap a new gift.
Note – Since gifts can be stolen, the gift in your possession is not actually yours until the game is over. However, a gift is labeled as “frozen” after it has been stolen a total of 3 times. So the 4th person to have the gift in their possession owns it.
When all the gifts have been opened, the person that had the first pick will have a chance (if they want) to steal a gift that is still available. Once they have made their decision, the game is over.
Once again, all you have to do to participate in the White Elephant Gift Exchange is bring a wrapped gift that’s brand-new or unopened and valued at $10 or more.
