Centered on compassion

CHEERS for the opening of the Gilroy Compassion Center which is now operating during daylight at 8425 Monterey Road.

For now, it's a place to pick out a donated coat, get a cup of coffee, make a phone call or take a break on the couch while the children play with donated toys. The hours are from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Volunteers and donations are needed. Visit to find out how you can help.
