Baxter, TN - March 10, 2020
On March 10, 2020, Compassion Ministries took food and supplies received by donations due to coverage by Channel 10 to tonado victims in Baxter, Tennessee and returned on March 11, to work with local volunteers in Putnam County to distribute the donations. The losses of life and property were heartbreaking.
Pembrooke, NC - October 2, 2018
On Tuesday, October 2nd, Compassion Ministries travelled to Lauringburg, North Carolina to distribute food to the Pembroke community. The Pembroke community was not hit so hard by the hurricane itself, but, flooded several feet in the days afterwards as the rivers rose to cover most roads in the area. Harpers Ferry Baptist Church suffered with several feet of water inside the church, but, wanting to help the community, hosted this distribution in their parking lot. Reverend Lawrence Garner said that while they could look inward at their own problems, they wanted to look outward and help the suffering in their community.
2nd Harvest of East Tennessee, Manna House of Asheville, NC, Restoring Hope of Laurinburg NC, Moore Freight Service, Feeding the Children, many local businesses in the Pembrooke community, and many other regional food banks as far as Houston provided food, trucks (including drivers), and personnel to allow food and provisions to come to around 700 families affected by this tragedy. The day was very long and hot, but, the joy of helping those hurting was awesome! Thanks to everyone who donated time and goods to make this a momentous success.
