Stories of Impact

Give Where You Live

We are continually working on ways to make Craighead County better for all of its citizens. We are honored to work alongside many groups to make this happen. Two of those include the Beck Pride Center and the Two Saints Kitchen. Two Saints Kitchen provides free hot lunches every Saturday to anyone who wants to come. This is a joint ministry of two Jonesboro churches—St. Mark’s Episcopal Church and St. Paul United Methodist Church. It has grown to feeding an average of 50 people each week and serves a vital role in addressing the hunger problem in our community. Derek Barker and his service dog, Nika, are grateful to Paws4Vets for bringing them together. Nika has saved Derek from an inability to function in the face of debilitating night terrors, isolation and episodes of disassociation following five deployments in Iraq and Afganistan. CCCF is grateful to the Sloan Rainwater Endowment for enabling us to support this vitally important support work for returning veterans through the Beck PRIDE Center (
