"Interfaith Compassion Ministry is one of our community's longstanding nonprofits dedicated to assisting individuals in need through crisis periods," says Kelly Shannon, Director of Volunteer Services. "They help provide basic needs that are so easily taken for granted from food, shelter, utilities and transportation. Many victims and families of 9/11 relied on the generosity of organizations like Interfaith Compassion Ministry during their time of need."
