Hot Meals Warm Hearts

It’s not just about feeding the hungry. It's about nourishing hearts and building a more compassionate community.

Thanksgiving and the holidays are a time of celebration of provision for many. But for some, they’re reminded every day that they don’t have enough to eat. Fortunately, the Boerne community rallies around its neighbors in their times of need. During this Thanksgiving season, consider supporting these organizations’ life-changing work through donations of food or finances, volunteering your time, and encouraging others to get involved. Together, we can make Boerne a better home for everyone!

Hill Country Family Services
HCFS operates at the intersection of urgent need and lasting change. They promote mental and physical wellness, stability, and independence for individuals and families who are in crisis throughout Kendall County. Their Thrift Shop and Warehouse helps provide clothing and household items to families in need and conducts retail sales to fund programs like counseling, food, clothing, and emergency financial assistance. HCFS helps people survive the crisis they’re facing and then learn to thrive.

Taking It To The Streets
People who are struggling often need more than a meal, so Taking It To The Streets offers friendship and community too. By restoring dignity and purpose to people experiencing homelessness, they often see lives transformed. The big way they do this? Downtown Dinners. Every Saturday, more than 200 people in downtown San Antonio receive a meal and a friendly smile. You can join in by helping prepare a meal or by offering your talents at things like cutting hair and painting nails. Special projects come up the interstate to Boerne, and they’re always looking for organizations willing to sponsor or host.

Hill Country Daily Bread Ministries
This Boerne powerhouse provides for the everyday needs of individuals and families through its food pantry and grocery delivery. There’s also a mentorship program to help people overcome poverty and build financial resilience. And during this special time of year, they also provide holiday meals, gifts for children, and other assistance to help make the holidays brighter. You can help through donations and by supporting their administrative tasks and food distribution efforts.

The Center
At The Center, older adults get help staying active and engaged in our community. They offer things like social events and leisure activities to help retirees enjoy their free time. But they also support our homebound neighbors through daily visits and offering rides to run errands or make appointments. Meals On Wheels delivers meals and the Medical Loan Closet provides in-home medical equipment for short- or long-term needs. And the thrift shop generates funds to support it all.
