MEDFORD, Ore. -- Compassion Highway Project does so much for the Rogue Valley.
"We do huge feeds every other Sundays where we have a ton of food hygiene products, clothes and shoes and haircuts," said Melissa Mayne, the founder of the Compassion Highway Project.
Melissa Mayne started Compassion Highway Project 6 years ago. The project relies strictly on donations from the community.
"I just want to help everyone and sometimes that’s not always possible. I might not have the funds to or the resources," Mayne said.
Last week they got approved for a new building. Now Melissa and the rest of the volunteers with the Compassion Highway Project say they can more effectively serve the community that they live in.
"I grew up here so it’s really important to do what I can in the community and make it better," Mayne said. "I definitely want to have other organizations stop in because when we do street outreach — wound care is one of the biggest things we need help with.”
And hopefully that means getting more people in need back on their feet.
