Thanks to your generosity we were able to partner with the Smokehouse in Mt. Pleasant and give $3,300.00 to help meet the needs of their staff. You are making a difference in our community and the lives of other people!
Below you can find information on all of our current Outreach projects.
You can also find out how you can get involved with each project through serving!
We have heard from Mt. Pleasant House, the assisted living facility in our community, and they have given us a list of items that would be beneficial to their residents right now. Everything that comes in must be wiped down, so consider buying multi-packs of items when possible. That way only the exterior package would require disinfecting. Only commercially prepared and packaged food items are allowed. Here are a few items they suggested:
Razors, Shaving Cream, Combs/brushes, Shampoo/conditioner,
Fingernail polish (pinks/reds), Fingernail polish remover, Cotton balls,
Snacks, such as Little Debbie’s or Lance Cheese Crackers
Gift cards (iTunes, Amazon, gas, restaurants, etc) are great gifts for staff as well.
Over the next two weeks, you can pick up one or two of these items and plan to drop them off at our facility. The designated drop-off location will be under the awning at the front entrance of Propel Church (400 N Main Street, Mount Pleasant) and will open starting on April 1st.
At least once a week, someone from our team will deliver the items collected to MP House.

Compassion International releases children from poverty in Jesus' name. That is their mission. Through a holistic approach to child development, they carefully blend physical, social, economic and spiritual care together in Jesus' name. They are church-based. This is due to their desire to equip the Church to fulfill its role as salt and light, and because local congregations are catalysts for community change, optimizing the mutual respect, resources, and common purpose critical in caring for children.
