HCCM operates a Food Pantry that stocks nonperishable food and essential personal care items donated by churches, businesses, organizations, schools and individuals.
The Food Pantry is supplemented by food from Capital Area Food Bank. And additional food is purchased from HEB. Last year, HCCM filled 4,200 family food orders, distributing more than 235 tons of food. That's 391,000 meals!
The Clothes Closet provides serviceable, gently-used clothing for children and adults. Additionally, the Clothes Closet provides coats, jackets, and new socks and underwear. The Clothes Closet assists approximately 2,400 adults and children with clothing each year.
In addition to food and clothing, HCCM provides vouchers for free eye exams and glasses through a vision program and Payless shoe vouchers for school-age children.
HCCM actively refers clients to more than 75 agencies for access to additional community resources to help stabilize their situation.
"I have been coming to HCCM for the last 2 years for food for my sister and myself. Last year I was able to get a fan and this year my sister and I were able to get eye exams and new glasses. Also I have gotten clothes and shoes from their Clothes Closet and blankets when the cold weather was here. Thanks so much for all your help! What a wonderful blessing. I thank HCCM and thank God." - Debra
"HCCM has been an extreme blessing to my household and family! Times have been hard for far too long and if it weren't for the extra meals, snacks, and treats life would seem 'hungrier' than it has been. God bless every hand that volunteers, donates, believes, and receives its spirit and nourishment. And let it continue to touch those who are in need. Thank you!" - Anonymous
