President Attends Faith-Based and Community Initiatives Conference
Washington Hilton Hotel
Washington, D.C.

President's Remarks

      Fact Sheet: Compassion in Action: Producing Real Results for Americans Most in Need
      Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives

11:49 A.M. EST

THE PRESIDENT: We just had a very interesting dialogue here. I want to thank members of the faith community, the community based action community, the corporate community, the foundation community for joining in a dialogue about how we can continue to foster the good works of millions of our fellow citizens who deeply care about the future of our country and the plight of their fellow citizen.

One of the things that always strengthens my belief in our future is my understanding of how many acts of kindness take place on a daily basis in the United States -- and it doesn't require any government edict or government law. People really care about the future of our country; millions of our citizens weep when they know somebody hurts. But, nevertheless, there still needs to be focused efforts on encouraging more giving of money and time.

So I want to thank you all very much for joining us. Appreciate your being social entrepreneurs. I thank you for really strengthening the heart of the United States of America. Thank you.

END 11:51 A.M. EST
