Citizenship and Immigration Clinic
Nov. 14, 2015

48 individuals were helped
AND we served lunch to over 90!
(many brought families!)


22 individuals phoned in and made appointments plus there were 26 walk in individuals who came looking for help.

We had 35 volunteers waiting for them:  17 from the UMC churches of the Antelope Valley plus 6 from the Cal Pac Annual Conference, 4 from the community and 6 from the Alliance for Justice.

Many guests will be returning to be at the Lancaster UMC Choir Concert on Dec. 6.
There was also a lot of interest in the Las Posadas on Dec. 17 at LUMC and the Christmas Eve Services of the various churches. 

We thank God for Donna Horn, Leticia Wilson and the many, many volunteers who put in countless hours!
