Thanksgiving Pies for Compass Housing Alliance
It is a tradition at FLC to help provide pumpkin pie and whipped cream for the 400 men and women that reside at the several Compass shelters and homes for their Thanksgiving dinner. We will be collecting donations to buy the pies (as required by health safety laws) during November. If you would like to donate, please make your check or cash donation labeled Thanksgiving pies on your check or envelope.
