2020 Compassion Delivered Gala

In 2020, no one has been unaffected. The pandemic has changed our businesses, our finances, our relationships, and the way we live day-to-day. What hasn’t changed is our mission at Compassion Delivered. We’ve had to pivot this year to continue meeting the needs of our meal recipients, but it’s become increasing paramount that we are able to continue to provide free meals to people in our community who are coping with life-threatening illness and disease.

Traditionally, Compassion Delivered has hosted the Be The Change Gala for the past two years in October. This gala has helped us raise the money we need in order to operate at no-cost to our meal recipients. This has been done through the generous support of our attendees, sponsors and donors. While we are unable to host our in-person gala, we have to pivot to find a way to continue to support our meal recipients.
