The mission of Grateful Hearts is to provide hope for the hurting by being a community resource center to those in need. This is accomplished through the ongoing distribution of nutritious food, clothing, household items, hygiene products, over the counter medicines, medical equipment and other various emergency assistance items to the local community we serve. We deliver food and other necessity items to shut-ins, which by reason of illness, age or injury, are not able to access such items from our facility. We also donate multiplied pallets of items for emergency relief (including Meals Ready to-Eat, batteries, flashlights, blankets, water, wheel chairs, walkers, crutches, and over-the-counter medicines, etc.)
Our vision is to offer a hand up, rather than just a hand out. Whether we are supplying a refrigerator to a single mom, who may lose her children to the foster care system simply because she does not own one, providing holiday meals to deployed soldier’s families, or sending emergency assistance to poverty stricken and disaster ravaged areas, it is the mission and vision of Grateful Hearts to see that none of our neighbors goes hungry, ever.
Our distribution programs coupled with educational classes on subjects such as basic finance and budgeting, nutritional guidance, English as a second language and disaster preparedness, help to provide immediate emergency assistance as well as helping to create an enhanced sense of preparedness and sustainability in the event of a disaster or crisis.
We are currently open to serve the public 3 days a week with another day of distribution dedicated to serving agencies such as the U.S. Vets, Veterans of America, and various Mental Health Facilities.
Since its inception, Grateful Hearts has assisted hundreds of ancillary agencies with items for their clientele.
We also belong to a community network of other Local Nonprofits such as The Los Alamitos Rotary, Los Alamitos Recreation Center, Youth Center, Precious Life, We Care, Casa Youth and others, where we pool our resources and provide items that others may need.
