About Us

The Compassion Society is driven by a team of amazingly dedicated volunteers with the gift of time. The organization’s volunteers, two staff, and board actively solicit monetary donations, in-kind donations, and gifts that enable us to serve all the families that come to us in need.

How to help

  • Few things in life are as rewarding as knowing you have done something in a very tangible way to help someone less fortunate than yourself.
  • You can experience that feeling by becoming a Compassion Society Volunteer.
  • Our volunteers are the backbone of our charity. Duties range from sorting clothing, assisting clients with finding items, setting up, cleaning, distributing food, stocking shelves and administrative tasks.
  • We hope you’ll consider becoming one of our volunteers. You’ll be doing something REALLY worthwhile!

"I want to be part of a community and workforce where people feel appreciated and are treated with respect and dignity. My aim is to continue the tradition of the Compassion Society being a place where clients feel supported and the volunteers and staff love coming in to help the needier among us. Some great people at Compassion Society inspire me and I hope I live up to their high expectations."
