AUHS Foundation is excited to announce A Church of Love will host the annual Acts of Love Thanksgiving Meal for the Homeless and Needy on Sunday, November 21, 2021. Last month, A Church of Love, led by Pastor Gregory Johnson, moved into its new and permanent location at 1250 Orange Avenue, Long Beach, CA 90813. AUHS Foundation volunteers will serve hot Thanksgiving meals with all the trimmings in a to-go box to reduce contact due to the ongoing pandemic. The brunch includes turkey, corn–on–the–cob, candied yams, mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing, pumpkin pie cookies, and a juice box. In addition to a hot meal, homeless residents will receive a hygiene bag with supplies, socks, and a beanie or a new sleeping bag. We aim to serve 300 meals this year. Hopefully, we can return to serving sit–down hot meals and providing free haircuts to those in need next year.
Saturday, October 16, 2021, was the 8th Annual AUHS Health & Wellness Fair. Among the services provided were health screenings, vaccinations (Covid and flu), eye exams, dental hygiene education, and mental health services. Some 400 low-income families and senior citizens representing the diverse community of Signal Hill and Long Beach received free groceries including chicken, canned vegetables, and rice. Over 100 children received new and used books and free pumpkins which they could decorate at the arts and crafts booth.
