Mid Chambers Christian Caring Center, Inc.
MCCCC's Corporate Sponsors & Partners
Corporate Donations and Awards, 2013
Entergy, our local energy company, awarded the MCCCC a Micro Grant for
$1,000 in March. This grant will provide additional improvements to the
Thrift Shop, including more clothing racks and shelving.
ExxonMobil donated a $500 Community Involvement award to the MCCCC as a result of the volunteer efforts of Ms. Diane Sullivan.
In addition, we have "partners" in our mission. The largest is the Houston Food Bank: we contract with them for hundreds of items each year for our operations, mostly at the Food Pantry. They also supply us with occasional gifts of extra foods and goods.
B&B Grocery (Brookshire Bros.), right here in town, assists us each Christmas as we prepare our special Christmas Meal boxes; the business, when it was Hill's Grocery, has supported the work of the MCCCC for decades. Wilcox Drugs, Gore Propane, TBCD, JJ's Chevron, and the City of Anahuac cooperate so we can provide the voucher program for our needy residents.
Chambers County Commissioners' Court and the City of Anahuac work within the restraints of their statutes and charters to assist us when possible; we in turn provide supplemental assistance to them, particularly in times of disasters, whether it be house fires of local families, or recovery from storms.
Several donations were made in 2016 to the MCCCC. We wish to acknowledge Trinity Episcopal Church for their very generous response to the needs of the community. Other churches contributing this year included First Baptist Church of Anahuac, St. Paul United Methodist, Community Christian Fellowship, Oak Island Baptist, First United Methodist Church of Anahuac, Our Lady of Light Catholic Church, and Hankamer Community Fellowship.
Corporate donations that matched private giving this past year included the Network for Good; Google; and the Schwab Charitable Fund.
First United Methodist Church of Anahuac held a summer food drive, donating the proceeds to the Caring Center Pantry. Representatives are pictured at right.
United Way Work Day at MCCCC
Volunteers with United Way of Greater Baytown Area & Chambers County rolled up their sleeves October 11 to give some much-needed spiffing up to the MCCCC building. In addition to shelving being installed for the medical supply room, volunteers added sealant to the outside of the brick building, painted walls and doors, and generally, brightened up the aging facility:
