Great News! Our Stolen truck has been recovered.

One of Foothill Unity Center’s 14’ white box truck was stolen this past Wednesday, August 14th. Fortunately, it was recovered thanks to the great work from the Monrovia and Pasadena Police departments.

We are so grateful to have our truck back as it is critical to the daily operations of our programs. It is one of two trucks that we rely on for more than the hundred weekly pick-ups of our in-kind food donations valued at over $2 million (annually). The food totals approximately 3 million pounds and helps to serve over 6,500 low-income and homeless individuals, including seniors and disabled persons who are isolated, sick and shut-in.

Sincere thanks to our community for any tips you may have provided and for your support!

Thank you to the volunteers, donors & sponsors of our August 2019 Back to School Event!

On behalf of the Foothill Unity Center Board of Directors, staff and clients being served, we would like to thank all the Back to School Committee, all the donors, sponsors, amazing volunteers and community members for supporting the 21st annual Back to School Distribution event on Tuesday, August 6, at the historic Santa Anita Park Racetrack.   Through your dedicated support more than 1,000 low income San Gabriel Valley Foothill TK through college students received brand new back packs, school supplies, socks, underwear, clothing/uniform, shoe vouchers, books, dental, hearing and vision screenings. Additionally they were able to visit college and career pathway representatives. The event provided memorable moments for everyone and prepared students for a successful start of the new school year.  Due to your support these students will be properly prepared and feel confident to start the school year.

Thank you for helping to make a difference in the lives of local students!
