Celebrating 24 years of serving the local community, Compassion Ministries of Waco held their annual fundraiser Tuesday afternoon.

The event was held at Phoenix Ballroom in downtown Waco.

Many residents came out to support the local organization and to have a good time.

Compassion Ministries helps homeless families in the Waco area with housing and job guidance.

The fundraiser is used as a way to give thanks, but also an opportunity for those that want to help.

“A lot of times people want to help, but they just don't know how to help, or who to help and I think one thing that people like about compassion is we're a local organization helping local people,” said Jill McCall, Executive Director of Compassion Ministries of Waco.

Compassion Ministries takes applications for housing every Tuesday at their facility in Waco.
