Jamestown - April 2020
On Friday, April 17, 2020, Compassion Ministries conducted a “drive-through” mobile pantry. The drive-through was to help us stay in compliance with social distancing standards as set forth in Coronavirus personal safety standards. While we happily do this, it takes away much of the personal contact our volunteers love and give so freely to our customers.

The volunteer helpers were bountiful and much needed that day. Our primary supporter in Fentress County are Todd Burnett, County Judge, and his wife, Tracey. Without their hearts for this community, we would not be able to meet such a large outpouring of people. Along with the County Commissioner, many community volunteers, and members of the “Alive in the Spirit” Church, we served 955 families representing 2,563 members of the community. Lest we forget, we could never do these pantries without the fervent support from our financial sponsors. For this one, United Health Care was our hero.

Because of the large crowds, the traffic was so bad that our Pastor had to have a police escort to get there with another load of supplies. Each family went home with $400+ in groceries and we left excess food there for Judge Burnett to distribute as needed.
