Helping Foothill Unity Center

Church of the Open Door not only wants to take care of those that are a part of our faith community, but we also desire to obey Christ's words to help all those suffering.   Foothill Unity Center, has been providing food and health services to families and homeless in the San Gabriel Valley for over 15 years.  COD has donated food, school supplies, and volunteers to help Foothill Unity Center in their care of those suffering.

As events occur throughout the year, we will provide information below on how you can participate.

For more information about the Caring Ministry of COD, please contact Eric Folbrecht at

Food Collection for Foothill Unity Center

We are collecting non-perishable food to be given away during Foothill Unity Center's Thanksgiving Food Distribution.  During this distribution, about 2000 boxes of food will be given to poor families living in the San Gabriel Valley.  Your items can be placed in the white barrel located in the front of the White House, Worship Center, and gym.  The last collection day is Sunday, November 13.

Ideas for food items (think Thanksgiving):
