Who we are

The Christian Compassion Center, Inc. (C3) collects merchandise from national retail outlets, businesses, and individuals for distribution to  citizens in need, free of charge. Through our ever growing number of volunteers and partners, we have been able to assist families in their immediate tangible goods needs and at the same time, empower our partners to assist in core needs assessment and long term holistic solutions.

1 John 3:17: “But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s  love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.”

Why we do it

To demonstrate compassion by giving valuable goods to those in need and through these activities share the Good News.

James 2:14

What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that?  So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.”
