HCCM Appoints New Executive Director
Hill Country Community Ministries is pleased to announce that beginning on October 5, 2015 Tiesa Hollaway will serve as the organization's new Executive Director. Following an extensive search, the Board of Directors unanimously approved Hollaway for the position. Hollaway recently left the real estate industry after 17 years to pursue her calling and passion of serving her community.
Board Chairman Jerrell Roque said, "We had many strong candidates from all over the Central Texas area. Hollaway brings amazing energy, enthusiasm and 10+ years of proven nonprofit and organizational development, knowledge and experience."
Jodie West, a member of the Executive Director Search Committee said, "We wanted a leader with proven non-profit experience, business leadership and, most of all, positive community relations. Tiesa has all of the skills the committee felt were needed to serve our members and continue to grow Hill Country Community Ministries, and the passion and drive to inject new life into the community. We are excited to welcome her."

Holiday Turkeys for Families in Need
Due to the number of families needing assistance through our Food Pantry on a day-to-day basis, we anticipate that we will distribute approximately 500 turkeys to needy families this year during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday season.
We Need Your Help!
You, your church, business, or civic organization can help by donating funds to purchase turkeys for families in need. The cost of each turkey is approximately $15. Funds raised over and above the cost of the turkeys will be used to provide all the “fixin’s” for the turkey dinner and purchase additional food during the holiday season.
See the flier for more information.
Give the Gift of Hope
This Christmas season, give the gift of hope to area families in crisis who struggle to put food on the table and pay for the basic necessities that most of us take for granted. Honor your friends, family and business associates with a donation to Hill Country Community Ministries. For a donation of $10 you will receive a 5" x 7" card (and envelope) to acknowledge your donation to HCCM and honor your card recipient. See flier for more information.
Follow the Star - December 3, 4, & 5
The fourth annual Follow the Star event, produced by Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, is scheduled for December 3, 4, and 5. The event is an outdoor drive-through and walk-through production featuring 10 critical scenes which follow the life of Christ from birth to resurrection. Professional sound, lighting and approximately 250 cast and crew members make this a spectacular event.
Follow the Star is free and open to the public. Attendees are asked to bring nonperishable food items to be donated to Hill Country Community Ministries Food Pantry. All food and monetary donations benefit HCCM. For more information, go to the event website at www.FollowTheStarTexas.com.
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.
"Meet the Challenge" Summer Campaign
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.
