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 who we serve. Our food pantry is an expression of compassion and respect for both people and Nature. According to the most recent estimates by the U.S. Census Bureau, the city of Erie’s overall poverty rate of 29. 2 percent is the second highest of any major city in Pennsylvania, behind Reading’s 39.6 percent. More than a quarter of Erie County’s children live in poverty, higher than Pennsylvania’s average. 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
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."
