The East San Gabriel Valley Coalition for the Homeless (ESGVCH) is a non-profit 501c3 charitable organization, incorporated since 1994, based in Hacienda Heights in the San Gabriel Valley, operating under a voluntary board of directors to directly aid people bringing hope and restoring dignity to people experiencing homelessness. Resources come from churches, service groups, foundations, businesses, government agencies, individuals and families. The ESGVCH serves all persons who are homeless according to the federal definition, and without discrimination based on age, gender, race, ethnicity, lifestyle, or national origin. From Nov, 2015 to mid-September 2016 525 homeless have died in Los Angeles County. We are most grateful for So. Cal Gas. Co.’s example of community service, compassion and mercy to homeless whose population is growing and who are often unwanted, unloved, and uncared for. Real love is selfless, sacrificial, and unconditional. We hope that other businesses, small and large, will follow as well. The ESGVCH is a Coalition where all work together to help the homeless. Our website is: ESGVCH.org, email address is esgvch@aol.com  and phone is: 626-333-7204.

This year Southern California Gas Co. through their Azusa/Industry bases which serves Azusa, Covina, West Covina, Diamond Bar, Glendora, Industry and San Dimas is gathering personal items, clothing and potential funds from employees which will be donated to the homeless during the ESGVCH’s Winter Shelter which will be from Dec. 1, 2016 through March 1, 2017 and the Emergency Assistance Center in Hacienda Heights. Homeless often feel discouraged, anxious, abandoned. For further information from So. Cal. Gas Co. contact: Robert Cruz, Public Affairs Manager, RCruz1@semprautilities.com, office: 909-394-4268
