It is my pleasure to update you on behalf of Capital Outreach and share the remarkable work we have been doing through our Compassion initiatives. The first update involves our name. We were inspired to replace the name “Outreach” with the name “Compassion.” So, we will now go forward as Capital Compassion.
For decades, Capital has been dedicated to promoting compassion, empathy, and unconditional love. Our initiatives reveal our commitment to fostering a more compassionate world. We are making significant strides in addressing the needs of the most vulnerable members of our community.
In just two months, our Capital Compassion has achieved the following milestones:
Providing Essential Supplies
Through our partnership with World Vision, we connected with 26 churches and non-profit organizations to distribute more than $180,000 worth of household goods to families who were struggling to make ends meet.
At our Warehouse location we serve individuals and families every day with groceries and supplies. Our Compassion team of volunteers provided 300 bags of groceries, a fresh lunch, and a bag of winter clothing to encampments on the streets of our city.
Our Compassion volunteers served a Rosemont community event to set up tables, canopies, and inflatable bounce houses. We then served the various vendors with support and provided our own station where we gave away several pallets of diapers, body armor drinks, and dog treats to the residents of the community. We also served a midtown event called “Hops and Hounds,” to set-up their event for a day of connecting with the residents.
Our Compassion team served three refugee families from Afghanistan with sewing machines to augment their income. We provided their children with stuffed animals that were age appropriate as well as diapers as needed.
We firmly believe that compassion has the power to transform lives and strengthen our community. To sustain and expand our Compassion program, we rely on the generosity of individuals like you. Your support has already made a significant difference in the lives of those less fortunate. Thank you for standing with us to change our world.
I would like to invite you to a special gathering to connect with our Capital Compassion family and learn more about opportunities that are unfolding.
One of our church partners, Pastor Donny Burleson, has made his church available for us to meet on Thursday, November 16. The location is Freedom Church. Address: 7736 Sunset Ave., Fair Oaks, CA
From 6-6:45pm we will share Thanksgiving desserts and renew friendships. Feel free to bring your favorite Thanksgiving dessert to share. From 6:45-7:30pm we will gather for inspiration and vision regarding opportunities ahead. Cathy and I would love to connect with you for this special evening.
On Saturday, November 18, we will provide a turkey and dinner provisions for 150 families to celebrate a joyful Thanksgiving. Families can pick up these provisions at our Warehouse location right off of Mather Blvd exit/Hwy 50 from 10am-12pm that day. This will be a drive thru in the culdesac at: 10151 Croydon Way, Sacramento, 95827
At the same time, our Capital Compassion volunteers will be taking another 150 bags of groceries to select homeless encampments. It will be a significant day of sharing the love of Jesus.
Our community partnerships continue to expand. We kindly request your continued support by making a donation to our Compassion Outreach ministry.
