Signal Hill, CA – American University of Health Sciences, a Christian-based, minority-serving university dedicated to providing high-quality education centered around the precepts of God, the ethics of care and community service, will be hosting an “Acts of Love” Food Giveaway on Friday, September 7, 2012 from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. on the university campus located at 1600 E. Hill Street in 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 American University of Health Sciences Foundation and with the support of Superior Markets.
Acts of Love was developed as a way for the school and its students to give back to the community and designed for low-income families and homeless. Pastor Gregory Johnson, Co-Founder of AUHS as well as Vice Chairman of AUHS’ Board of Trustee’s states, “we receive so much from God and have seen so many wonderful things these 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.”
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 we first started Acts of Love in 2010, we have seen the program grow from 150 to 600 boxes of food, enough to feed a family for several days.”
