Appalachian Distribution Center

In the last three years, Operation Compassion has shipped 24 semi trucks of food and clothing to needy people in West Virginia. The new facility will hold 10 semis of food and clothing, allowing us to supply dozens of other nonprofit agencies. The basement of the Dream Center is large enough to hold 10 semis
of food as well as a freezer that will accommodate
40,000 pounds of frozen food.
