“Acts of Love” Food Give-Away

American University of Health Sciences Foundation, a foundation dedicated to providing ethics of care and community service, will be hosting an “Acts of Love” Food Give-Away on Friday, September 7, 2012 from 3:00-5:00 PM on the university campus located at 1600 E. Hill Street in the city Signal Hill. Nursing and Pre-Pharmaceutical students will be on-hand to provide free health screenings along with brown bag sessions. The event is sponsored by the AUHS Foundation along with the support of Superior Grocers.

“Acts of Love” was developed as a way for the university and its students to give back to the community and is designed for low-income families and the homeless. Pastor Gregory Johnson, Co-Founder of AUHS, states, “We receive so much from God and have seen so many wonderful things these past 18 years as we have grown. To do this and more can never reach the scale of the generosity He renders to us each day.” Pastor Johnson went on to explain that volunteering for soup kitchens and offering shelter and basic necessities for the homeless and needy are usually reserved for the holidays. But today so many families are in dire need. At AUHS, the passion for assisting those in need is neither seasonal nor temporary. It is something to which we are committed to providing regularly. That is why, through our Acts of Love program, we continually distribute food to needy families in our community all-year round. Since Acts of Love was launched in 2010, we have seen the program grow from 150 to 600 boxes of food which is enough to feed a family for several days.
