Compassion Through Action is not just a slogan, it is the way we live our values every day of this campaign. It is about creating a positive impact in our community and supporting those in need.
We created our Compassion Through Action program to connect healthy, able-bodied volunteers with members of our community in need. Needs may vary—some people need water, food, basic supplies, or just a friendly phone call on a lonely day.
Please fill out the form to be connected to someone in your community.
