November 2017

During a season of giving thanks, we want to send a special thanks to all of our supporters, donors, prayer partners, and ministry friends.  Reaching the vulnerable kids and youth at COMPACT could not be accomplished with out your continued support.  Thank you for your time, donations, prayers, and resources to redeem the fatherless and family. We wish blessings to you and your families during this Thanksgiving season.

Christmas time is just around the corner on the COMP ACT ® Campus. Christmas is a special, yet emotional time for our kids as well as our staff. Often times, it is the first time a child is away from his/her family or it is the first time Christmas will truly be celebrated.  

COMP ACT ® Christmas is a large operation on our campus and meets the needs at Christmas time as the continuing needs of our kids throughout the year. It is something that we could not pull off without the help of donors.  

Consider supporting COMPACT Christmas in one of the following ways:
  • Support one child for Christmas and purchase an item off of this child's wishlist.  Contact our offices to receive a wishlist for a child. 
  • Support a cottage this Christmas and help by purchasing some items for the cottage.  Contact our offices to receive a wishlist for a cottage.
  • Support Christmas as a whole and send a donation to be used where most needed. 
  • Support Christmas as a whole and send a gift card to be used where needed.  These can be cards of ANY amount to ANY store (Walmart and Visa are always great choices). Gift cards allow us to fulfill wish lists for our kids and shop specifically.  Any leftover gift cards after all lists have been fulfilled are used throughout the year for birthdays and special occasions. Gift Cards are the gift that keeps on giving!
Donations can be mailed directly to us a the following address.   If you choose to shop on, you can also direct your gift to this address as well.  Please include a note to where the gift is intended.
