Coker Creek Elementary School - May 2020
On Friday, 29 May 2020, Compassion Ministries conducted a mobile food pantry, in partnership with United Health Care at Coker Creek Elementary, located in Monroe County. We worked closely with school administrators, and members of the Community Church Tellico Village. We were also blessed with numerous volunteers from Cornerstone Church and local workers from the Coker Creek community.

We provided food for 220 family units, serving 725 individuals overall. It was another day when the volunteers felt more blessed than possibly even the people we served. With so many restrictions still being observed to fend off the Pandemic, we did this as a drive-through. While our customers get their food, we as volunteers hope this is over soon as we all miss the personal touch of helping people one-on- one. But we do what we must do to fulfill the Lord’s command “...You Feed Them.!” Luke 9:13.

Coker Creek Elementary School - December 2019
On Saturday, 21 Dec 2019, we conducted a mobile food pantry, in partnership with United Health Care. Our location was an isolated community located in Monroe County. We worked closely with Principle Joey Deputy and Assistant Principle Shan Dalton of the local elementary school, Pastor Harrold Preyer, his wife Fran, and many volunteers of Grace & Glory Church. We were also blessed with numerous volunteers from our church and local workers from the Coker Creek community.

In the end, we received this letter from a Monroe County Juvenile Court caseworker. “I sent one of ‘my’ families to your event. They certainly needed it. They contacted me with tears in their voice of pure gratitude. They could hardly believe what they received and that they were given a shopping cart full. I am passing their joy along to you with my thanks as well.” Signed, Judith Dwyer.

We provided food for 259 family units, serving 867 individuals overall. As is always said, pictures speak more than words, so let’s speak some pictures.
