Santa Ana’s Southwest Community Center suffered a terrible fire last year, losing holiday food and gifts for the poor. Their structure had to be totally demolished.
Nine months later the Center has risen from the ashes, according to community activist Alan H. Woo, who posted the pictures in this post on his Facebook page.
You can help continue their great work by providing operations funds at their website, or make a check out to “SWCC” and mail it to SWCC, 1601 West 2nd Street, Santa Ana, CA 92703.
The Southwest Community Center provides food, clothing, shelter, guidance, health, and referral services to economically disadvantaged individuals and families, and assist and encourage those whom we serve to achieve self-sufficiency.
