Since 1950, the Guadalupe Community Center in Canoga Park has served thousands of people, primarily the impoverished Latinx community in the area .
The Center fought to remain open even through the COVID-19 Pandemic in order to serve our community through our food pantry and provide aid to low income families.
The Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry has served thousands of meals to countless homeless and low income families as well as provided essential services like daycare for essential workers throughout the Pandemic.
On June 1, 2020 the Center was broken into, vandalized and robbed. Although insurance and theft protection measures were taken, unfortunately thousands of dollars worth of equipment, gift cards and vouchers designated to help low income individuals and families will not be covered.
While we stand with the movement, the damage to our Center is putting a halt to the services we can provide those that are hurting. The cost of the damages and the loss to our community are astronomical, every dollar will count towards reopening this nonprofit community center and ensuring that we can get back to helping those in need.
