General operating support will allow the organization to reinstate a part-time Executive Director, significantly increasing the organization's capacity to coordinate the organization's numerous community programs, as well as the dedicated group of volunteers that support the organization's work.

For over fifteen years, the focus of the Center of Compassion has been to provide healthy, nutritious foods to those in need. What began as a small pantry program, now operates and oversees a thrift store, as well as a variety of food relief programs.
