I am honored to sit on the board of Compassionate Ministries of Jackson County (CMJC). Many years ago we started a food pantry. The entire amount we gave away would fit into one grocery cart. Today CMJC annually distributes 450 tons of food.
CMJC’s mission statement affirms that we are “dedicated to creating lasting solutions to hunger, violence, poverty, and social injustice in our community.”
Among our many ministries is David’s Promise, which serves people with special needs, offering dignity and purpose. David’s Promise just concluded our annual New Song Music Therapy Camp.
