The Maywood CA Chamber of Commerce, or MCCC, met last Wednesday in the Sabrosa Grill located in 3540 E Slauson Ave. Participant organizations included CODELA, a private preschool, CONTACTOS, a magazine that caters to the Latino community, and Lucia Aguilar, a local singer, as well as others. Together the participants discussed how they could help the community through food programs such as a free turkey drive for Thanksgiving, and how to make the organization better. Querubina Wuence, from Querubina Insurance Services, suggested that there be polling of members to ask what the organization lacks, and what it does well, in order to increase and retain membership, and better serve its members. Ana Popper and Araceli Zavala from CODELA private school explained the benefits of their school program, the lessons children learn about nutrition, and the way in which their program operates. Felipe Aguirre, the president of the MCCC spoke about the importance of keeping the youth away from drugs and in schools, emphasizing the need for our community to continue to produce educated members of society. The participants expressed a willingness to continue to collaborate in their efforts to increase the wealth and opportunity of Maywood’s businesses and their residents. The event was moderated by Alejandra Ayala, Secretary of the MCCC.
