COMPASSION COALITION ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Anyone who has a heart to pray for our city is welcome to join us at 8 am this Wednesday, March 5th in the Prayer Room at Central Baptist Church of Bearden. The church is located just 1 block west of the intersection of Northshore Drive & Kingston Pike at 6300 Deane Hill Dr Knoxville, TN 37919 (across from Krispy Kreme).
As summer approaches, we are reminded of the many people in our area who will need to find relief from the heat. With that in mind, a local family has approximately 19 or 20 window air conditioners in good working order that they would like to donate in memory of their son, who was in the a/c business. If you would like to claim some of these units to give to needy families, please contact Jason Warden at 865-966-5224 or e-mail email@example.com.
Compassion Coalition’s Furniture Ministry has waiting lists of people that need beds (particularly twin & queen), couches, and kitchen tables/chairs. If you would like to make a tax-deductible contribution of furniture that is in good condition, please contact Charlotte Mack at 865-251-1591 x 3 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to a fire in a local apartment complex, multiple families need assistance to rebuild their lives. El Puente, a non-profit organization that works specifically with the Hispanic community, has offered to coordinate assistance efforts. If you are interested in adopting a family or assisting a Spanish-speaking church in providing care and follow-up on an ongoing basis, please contact Robert Hodge at (865) 591-8677 or email@example.com. One of the easiest ways to help is to donate funds or Wal-Mart/Target gift cards to El Puente so that they can be distributed by the Spanish-speaking churches that are coming alongside these families.
