777 Community Warehouse, a 501(c) (3) Non-profit Public Benefit Organization is located at 777 South Allen Avenue, Suite A., in San Bernardino, California. The CEO/Director of Operations, Mr. William C. Walker, Sr., one cold winter day in 2012, stood outside an empty and completely bare 5300 sq. ft. warehouse and had a vision of this warehouse being developed into a community resource center. There is a large photograph sitting on a tripod at the entrance to the warehouse that verified these humble beginnings to be true. Mr. Oscar Easley, businessman and business partner at that time, joined Mr. Walker in this vision which is also reflected in the photograph at the entrance, with both men wearing heavy overcoats and sitting on wooden crates, as they discussed the future potential of the warehouse.
We are living in a new day and it requires new mindsets and new ways of being in this world. And through the graces of Omniscience God, the team at 777 Community Warehouse understands this and is committed to contributing to the expansion of community peace, cultural awareness, artistic expression, educational enlightenment, and consciousness building for personal and collective growth.
To date Mr. Walker has transformed the warehouse into the community resource and event center that he envisioned, presenting to the community a beautifully furnished art deco environment for community members to experience and enjoy. 777 Community Warehouse is designed to accommodate conferences, meetings, business and social mixers, performing arts presentations, visual arts presentations, religious services, educational seminars, musical concerts, wedding receptions, quinceaneras, and other events that support the needs of the community in a spirit of excellence.
Every Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Food and Clothing Ministry of 777 Community Warehouse is open to the homeless population and anyone in the community who is in need of clothing and food. This service is also available during other days of the week based on emergency needs and county agency referrals. Other family support services are available upon request.
Members of the community are encouraged and welcome to stop by and visit the facility at any time by call (909) 567- 5824 for an appointment. We look forward to serving you.
