Southwest Community Center in Santa Ana, California has been serving the very, very poor in Orange County for many years. At Christmas, the Center has long provided food and presents for about a thousand needy families and children.
As detailed in this story from the Orange County Register, the Center burned last night, with the Christmas gifts and eats for all those people going up in smoke.
If you would like to try and help put Christmas back together again for these families, visit the Center’s website here. The phone numbers for the Center –at least before the fire– were 714-547-4073 and 714-543-8933. The e-mail for the Center is firstname.lastname@example.org.
