Mt. Pleasant Area Community Foundation

For good. For ever.

Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for all citizens of Isabella County, now and for generations to come, by attracting and holding permanent endowed funds from a wide range of donors, addressing needs through grant making and providing leadership on key community issues.

Community Compassion Network Fund

Community Compassion Network is a Christian organization made up of volunteers from a wide variety of churches, businesses, organizations, and student groups. CCN strives to fight hunger by providing supplemental food to over 18,000 Isabella County families in need with dignity and equity. In Isabella County, 16.6% of the population suffers from food insecurity.  However, thanks to the Community Compassion Network, residents can utilize the resource to obtain necessary food item for themselves, and their children.

The Community Compassion Network Fund was established in 2018, and will help to sustain the Nutrition Club for elementary school children as well as the William Brockman Infant Pantry. Through the fund, they are able to continue programs like Nutrition Club which delivers over 600 bags of nutritious food twice a month to young students. Additionally, CCN provides supplemental diapers and other child care necessities 195 infants and toddlers every month.

The fund was established from a donation by the Larry Collins family, and family and friends of Mike Lindsay with hopes that it will help Community Compassion Network grow their impact.
