"Meet the Challenge" Summer Campaign
Business Sponsors Needed
Summer is the most challenging time of year for Hill Country Community Ministries. Financial donations decline and the number of families needing assistance continues to climb. To help us meet the need, we have launched a summer campaign to increase support from business sponsors.
We are hoping for a minimum of 40 Business Sponsors to help us purchase additional food to keep our food pantry full this summer. Sponsorships from $100 to $500 are available.See the flier for details.
Challenge Update - Look Who's Helping Us Meet the Challenge!
So far, the following businesses are helping us meet the challenge with their business sponsorship.
Food Pantry Needs Food Year-Round
Organize a Food Drive Today!
Your church, business, school or organization can help by organizing a Food & Fund drive. Learn how to organize one.
Financial contributions are just as important as donations of nonperishable food items and help us supplement food donations. Each $1 donated helps us purchase food from the Capital Area Food Bank for a small handling fee, approximately 13 cents on the dollar. How’s that for stretching a food dollar?
You can also link your Randall’s Remarkable card and your Amazon account so that a donation is made to us every time you shop!
