Little Rock Compassion Center serves up food, hope for Easter



Little Rock, Arkansas – At the Little Rock Compassion Center on Easter Sunday, volunteers provided a typical Easter supper of ham, vegetables, potatoes, and cobbler.

New socks and other gifts were also given to the folks receiving service.

Executive director pastor William Holloway said people in need of a fresh start were invited to celebrate the renewal of life this Easter Sunday as lunch preparations got underway at 5 A.M.

“We’ll feed close to 200 people,” Hollway said. “A lot of people that come in here are homeless, if it wasn’t for places like this, they’d have no place to eat.”

Pastor Holloway claimed that his experience as a youth living on the streets led him to serve the less fortunate.

The 3600 block of Roosevelt Road is home to the Little Rock Compassion Center. Supplies for personal hygiene, such as shampoo, razors, toothbrushes, and toothpaste, are currently needed.
