Hill Country Community Ministries is a nonprofit organization, a coalition of churches founded in 1983, to help families in crisis and those living in poverty in southwest Williamson and northwest Travis counties.
We are supported by area churches, businesses, civic organizations, schools, and concerned individuals, including the dedicated service of more than 200 volunteers.
HCCM operates a food pantry, clothes closet, and provides other assistance for approximately 400-500 families a month.

Hill Country Community Ministries marked its 30th anniversary on October 17, 2013. This a great milestone in our history and rather than one big celebration event, we will celebrate with various events and activities throughout our 30th year. We want to take time to celebrate our shared accomplishments and express our gratitude to our many partners, donors, volunteers, and our great community. Thousands of families have been helped during their time of crisis over the last three decades. We couldn’t do it without you!
Thirty years to the day that it was chartered, Mayor Chris Fielder and members of Leander City Council honored HCCM with a proclamation to recognize 30 years of service to the community and declare “a year of celebration and community awareness.” HCCM Executive Director Sherry McDonnell received the proclamation with HCCM board members Marcus Wamble, President; Robert McElwaine, Vice President; Joe Galvan, Treasurer; and Ron Langan and Tom Gress. The next morning, these board members and McDonnell traveled to the State Capitol to receive a Texas Resolution, which was presented to them by State Representative Tony Dale. Dale also presented the group with a Texas flag which had been flown over Capitol.
Business Sponsors "Meet the Challenge!"
Our campaign launched early in the summer to increase business sponsorship for HCCM met with great success. Not only did 17 businesses step up to help support HCCM and our Food Pantry, but they exceeded the $4,000 challenge grant provided by Life Church. Sponsorships now total $4,300, exceeding the challenge grant by $300! Thank you, sponsors!
It’s not too late to become a sponsor. Businesses are invited to become a sponsor at any time and help us assist families in need. A plaque is provided for each sponsor to display in their place of business and demonstrate their support for needy families in our community. Use this link for information and to become a business partner.
Coats, Jackets & Blankets Needed
Our supply of coats, jackets, and blankets is very limited. You can help by clearing out your closet of unused or unwanted coats and jackets and donating them to our Clothes Closet. We can also use blankets. All items need to be clean and in what we call “gently-used, serviceable” condition. A coat or jacket and blanket drive makes a good group project this time of year.
