Crisis Care Kits
Compassion as a Lifestyle
When we love as Jesus loved,
we are filled with his compassion, and
our lives will reach out to those around us.
The Fawn Grove Compassion Center, Inc. (FGCC) was recently organized as a 509(a)(1) faith-based, not-for-profit charitable and humanitarian organization. It is located at 5300 Fawn Grove Road, Pylesville, Maryland.
In 1992, the Center began its work with volunteers responding to the victims of the Mozambique floods. The people shipped a 40-foot container of high quality used clothing at that time. Since then, more than 400 shipments have been delivered to 22 world areas including the United States. In 2001, due to the high volume of humanitarian aid requested, Nazarene Compassionate Ministries (NCM) brought the warehouse operation under the "NCM umbrella" to cover the expenses and called it the "Fawn Grove Warehouse."
In 2011, FGCC was incorporated to manage and enhance the operations of gifts-in-kind procurement and providing those items as humanitarian aid to organizations that serve economically disadvantaged peoples globally. As of January 1, 2012, FGCC resumed management of the warehouse operations.
FGCC will continue to partner with NCM and has agreed to store and handle the Crisis Care Kits and School Pal-Paks for NCM. Please use the new Crisis Care Kit and School Pal-Pak instructions, noting the appropriate address determined by the type of shipment, the location from which shipments are sent, and how they are being shipped.
FGCC will continue to provide high quality humanitarian aid to NCM and other non-profit organizations to assist in response to those in need around the world.
There is an ongoing need for Crisis Care Kits, School Pal Paks, clothing, household soft goods and other items to assist those in need around the world. Any of these goods may be shipped to Fawn Grove Compassion Center as they have in the past at the following addresses:
