Center City Christian Outreach

The members of St. Agnes can take pride in the success of the Center City Christian Outreach, Inc  (CCCO). It  is an ecumenical endeavor involving nine Christian churches who “collaborate to witness God’s love by embracing all works of charity and justice, and make no distinction toward those served, because in them we see the face of Christ.” You probably know it by the name of its food pantry, the Well of Life.

The Well of Life Resource Center, located 418 S. Kimbrough Ave , is a project of the CCCO.  Its hours are 10-2 pm on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The phone number is 869-2865. Volunteers are welcome.
