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.
