Offering Goods Through Acts Of Kindness And Compassion

Compassionate Actions Project (CAP) is about caring in the best way we can for the people who we serve. Our food pantry is an expression of compassion and respect for both people and Nature. U.S. Census Bureau figures show that the city of Erie's poverty rate is 29.2 percent, based on 2013 figures. Erie's rate which jumped after two years of declines, is higher than the national poverty rate of 14.5 percent. Erie's poverty rate was 25.7 percent in 2012 and 28 percent in 2011. The poverty rate for children younger than 18 is 45.5 percent. 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."
