If you were in church on Sunday you were given fun sized boxes of cereal at the door. These were given as a reminder and a prayer that next Sunday everyone will return with large boxes of cereal to be donated to the Foothill Unity Center.
On the second Sunday of each month, St. Edmund’s will be collecting packaged cereals as well as unopened, travel size soaps and shampoos for donation to the Foothill Unity Center. Please remember the less fortunate of our community when you are at the grocery store or traveling this holiday season. Our first collection will be on November 11.

The number of people served by the organization has more than tripled over the last five years, making community funding contributions and volunteer support more critical than ever.
Foothill Unity Center is a place of real hope and possibilities for people in crisis throughout the San Gabriel Valley – offering food, temporary shelter, case management, transportation, referrals and a variety of health services for low-income and homeless people in eleven communities in Los Angeles County.
