The Compassion Experience

REDDING, Calif. - Simpson University, in conjunction with Compassion International, invites North State residents to attend “The Compassion Experience” Oct. 13-16.

This four-day, family-friendly event is free and will be held on Simpson’s campus in the parking lot behind the Science and Nursing Center. Simpson University students will be among the estimated 40 volunteers to help the event run smoothly. Online registration for this event is open.

Attendees will go on self-guided, interactive tours through a 1,700-square-foot exhibit, which includes a replica of living environments of children from Ethiopia and the Dominican Republic.

The purpose of the event is to show attendees what life is like in poverty-stricken countries and the difference they can make by sponsoring a child through Compassion International.
