Ways For A Community To Care

That Show We Understand

Offering Goods Through Acts Of Kindness And Compassion

Compassionate Actions Project (CAP) is about caring in the best way we can for the people that we serve. Our food pantry is an expression of compassion and respect for both people and Nature. According to U.S. Census Bureau data, the city of Erie, Pa's, poverty rate is at 30.2%, the second highest in Erie's history and twice the national average of 15.1%. The Census also shows that more than 47% of the city's children live below the federal poverty level, and 17.4 percent of Erie County residents live below the poverty line. When funding is available CAP will purchase and offer eligible people, health sustaining foods and personal care items. 

A Thanksgiving Prayer
By Samuel F. Pugh

"Oh, God when I have food, help me to remember the hungry;
When I have work, help me to remember the jobless;
When I have a warm home, help me to remember the homeless;
When I am without pain, help me to remember those who suffer;
And remembering, help me to destroy my complacency and bestir my compassion.
Make me concerned enough to help, by word and deed, those who cry out for what we take for granted."
