Going Forward With The "Compton Chamber Pantry" Program In 2021
Compton continues to be adversely affected by the pandemic. With businesses opening slowly and vaccinations becoming available, some people may think that the pandemic problem is over. Yet, this is far from the reality.
This next phase of the pandemic requires us to evaluate the needs of our community anew. As the infectious virus continues to affect our community, many residents are still living on the edge, find themselves out of work, in need of food, shelter, money and healthcare assistance. The food pantries throughout our city are still seeing a surge of need.
In the light of the current circumstances, it's irrefutable that the Chamber needs to go on with its community assistance services, with the pantry operation in its core. We are committed to ensure that everyone in our community has access to fresh nutritious food, while the healthcare professionals continue to provide systematic testing, contact tracing, vaccination, hospital treatments and public-health messaging until we immunize against the virus effectively.
The New Location For The 2021 Compton Chamber Food Pantry Program
During the last few weeks, we have been tirelessly working with the city officials to find a new location that fits the needs of the large scale pantry operation. The city leadership has committed to the new permanent location for the Compton Chamber Food Pantry to be the Lueders Park Community Center.
