The Dress

The Garza family came into CAM for groceries and a very unique request. Their ailing mother, well into her 90’s, was facing death. The family wanted to make sure that they could honor her with an outfit that she could be laid to rest in. The CAM staff/volunteers at the Downtown and Northwest locations began hunting for the picture-perfect suit for her. A little over a week passed before staff was able to find the impeccably perfect suit. Early that morning, a lovely suit arrived in the precise size and everyone knew this would be the one. The person who donated it may not have known how special this donation would be or what a precious gift it would be for a mother so beloved. Both of CAM’s locations accept clothing (and food) donations during the day; maybe some of the items you donate will have an incredible story too.
