Why Wheat?

The wheat logo for CAM references our commitment to sharing and caring for all of those in need by feeding them, clothing them, by providing financial assistance and by feeding their soul through grace and love. Wheat is often a symbol of life, sustainability, charity and love. Wheat is a global sustainer of life being utilized to create various forms of bread in different cultures. Historically people planted, harvested and broke bread together for the betterment of their community. Celebrating this incredible bounty by giving back was and is an important part of all cultures. Today many of us harvest in different ways and sharing our bounty with others is still incredibly important.: "When you harvest your fields, do not cut the grain at the edges of the fields, and do not go back to cut the heads of grain that were left; leave them for the poor…"

Leviticus 23:22,

C.A.M.

Just like a triage or emergency room, people come to CAM in all sort of crisis. No appointment is necessary and all are welcome.

What We Do

Our mission is to share the love of Christ by providing immediate assistance and encouragement to people in crisis. We do this in the following ways:

Grace
Every person who comes to CAM, regardless of beliefs, is considered a child of God. Help is extended to all clients through the distribution of food, clothing, financial assistance, or by referrals to other agencies, prayer and a listening ear.

Breaking Bread with Ray Vander Laan

November 3rd at University United Methodist Church

 

Christian Assistance Ministry (CAM) is hosting an incredible lunch and learn with author and pastor Ray Vander Laan. Ray’s 40 year preaching and teaching ministry is focused on understanding the Bible in light of the historical and cultural context in which God places it. He will be sharing a lesson from Leviticus that references the command to leave part of our harvest for those in need. What did that scripture mean at that time and what does it mean for us today? 

Why Wheat?

CAM, through the help of local churches, the community, and individuals has been helping those in need in San Antonio for the past 39 years. The wheat logo for CAM references our commitment to sharing and caring for all those in need. Wheat is a global sustainer of life being utilized to create various forms of bread. Today many of us harvest in different ways and sharing our bounty with others is still incredibly important. “When you harvest your fields, do not cut the grain at the edges of the field, and do not go back to cut the heads of grain that were left; leave them for the poor …” Leviticus 23:22

Share Your Harvest

OCTOBER 15TH - NOVEMBER 15TH

CAM will be hosting its annual “Share Your Harvest” drive this fall. This food drive is something truly special that CAM offers its clients. Always remember that CAM is for those in crisis who need emergency help. Our fall food drive is a great example of how we do this. Often the week before or the week of Thanksgiving we have clients come in who not only have no food in their pantries they most certainly do not have anything to celebrate the holiday with. We do not advertise our fall food drive to our clients, thus when we ask them “would you and your family like a bag of groceries for the holiday, we can even provide a turkey!” they are overcome with joy and relief. This year they can truly enjoy a harvest meal!

If you plan to host a Share Your Harvest Drive please call Grace Kanayan at
210-223-4099 or email her here. We are taking perishables and non-perishables.

We need donations by November 15th!
