“Wow, what a week! After a few years of hiatus, our corps hosted a Community Thanksgiving Dinner on Wednesday night. We served over 200 meals and started, what we hope will be a continued partnership with Aramark, Holiday Inn Burbank, and Big Citizen Hub. It was truly something to be thankful for!”

“"I'll fight- I'll fight to the very end." These words were delivered with great passion and love by our Founder, William Booth. Southeast Communities Corps youth, men and women joined "The Fight" against hunger, lost souls and darkness found in the streets of Huntington Park and surrounding cities this year by serving others not only this past Saturday, but by hosting a one week "I'll fight" campaign. They began the previous Sunday. It had been one of the coldest, and rainiest of our winter season. So, the youth and Captain Vicky packed some blankets and distributed 96 to men and women on the streets. Unfortunately 96 blankets were not enough for all of them. The night was cold and the streets were wet. Many lay down on the bare, cold cement. The most fortunate had plastic bags tied around their feet to keep them dry from the rain. Their hearts were broken when they realized they were short on the amount of blankets.”

“We had an amazing weekend! On Saturday, I'll Fight Day, our youth met to prepare lunches for people in our community with whom we could share the love of God. We stopped at three locations. One was a park where men that have just gotten out of prison and are mandated by the court to do community hours. We set up a station there and passed out hot chocolate and lunches. We were able to talk with them one-on-one and share the Lord Jesus and sing praise songs. Most of the men we prayed for wanted to rededicate their lives. This was a very rewarding experience for our youth. We passed out 86 lunches, all to the honor and glory of God. Sunday, afternoon our corps participated in the San Pedro Christmas parade. 44 corps members marched with our uniforms, our flags and our vans representing The Salvation Army in our community. It was a very tiring , but excitong, weekend !”

“We had a United service with our Spanish congregation on Sunday morning with an attendance of 123. (Many were missing from both groups) we also had a time of fellowship and lunch! Our entire ARC family was not in attendance as they were celebrating the retirement of one of their own back at the center (Major Moses Reyes). Additionally we did not have our weekly Celebrate Recovery Service on Friday night due to the holidays and the red kettle campaign. We expect all programs and services to be back to normal this week!”

“We had an amazing Thanksgiving worship meeting on November the 21st. We had a full house, 98 in attendance. It was also Corps Cadet Sunday. The Corps Cadets, led by Aslin Gomez, led the meeting from beginning to end, participating in Scripture reading, prayer, offering and even a special video clip in which each one shared a few words of thanksgiving. The Junior Soldiers participated with the song "Give Thanks", both in English and in Spanihs. Captain Ligia preached a message "A Grateful Heart" and seven seekers went up front in response. We were honored with guests from DHQ Captains Sergio & Stephanie Garcia and their family. We concluded with a meal and fellowship. ”
