Our Thursday lunch “Soup Talk” hosted by one of our pastors provides food both physical and spiritual to all who want to come. We rely on donations of prepared food to serve. We have had several people volunteer and bring in food. Today we want to highlight one of those volunteers.
 
Vicky has faithfully been supporting us this season and bringing in food every other week.  Meals have included homemade spaghetti and meatballs, pasta dishes and salads. Thank you Vicky for serving us with such delectable food!  Anyone else who would like to help prepare food please contact us. We serve as many as 45 hungry clients every Thursday.

This week we would like to highlight two of our liaisons from Crossroads Church, Arthur and Sarah Tham. Arthur has served faithfully for over six years and then brought in his wife Sarah who has also been serving. Now we are so excited to congratulate them again on the birth of their beautiful daughter! We are so thankful for their service and wish them many blessings on this new adventure of being parents!

Bounty of Food!

Every year Grocery Outlet does a donation drive to help feed the hungry in their communities. Compassion Network was the recipient for this year’s drive. Because of our lack of storage here at Compassion Network Headquarters, we decided to share the love with some of the organizations we partner with.

Grocery Outlet provided 800 bags of food and these bags were distributed to Kids Zone, TriCity Volunteers, Dollie’s Closet, Second Chance Shelter and agencies here at the FRC. We want to thank Grocery Outlet and all the people who supported this drive to feed our community!
