LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Whether it's serving up holiday meals or offering a warm place to stay in the cold winter months, the Little Rock Compassion Center is constantly working to help those in the Little Rock area who are homeless, transient, displaced and disadvantaged.
But due to the recent winter snow storm, the Compassion Center is the one needing help. As with many homes and businesses in the area, the Compassion Center has been without power since Christmas Day.
And that means they are struggling to provide food and shelter to those affected by the storm.
Reverand William Holloway is director of the Compassion Center says they are currently providing sleeping arrangements for about 200 people and feeding even more in their dining room.
"This has been one of the hardest weeks on us because we went from 500 meals a day to about 800 meals a day and they are still gaining," says Rev. Holloway.
Monetary donations can be made by calling 501-296-9114 or by mail at PO Box 4249, Little Rock, AR 72214. The Compassion Center is located at 3618 W. Roosevelt Road in Little Rock.
