Today is the 10th anniversary of Giving Tuesday, a movement started as a simple idea…a day that encourages people to do good. In celebration of this 10 year movement we are asking for your help and make a donation to CAM. We have seen an increase in needs over the last 3 years and it is not letting up. Your donations go to food, clothing, bus passes, utility bill assistance, resources for the houseless, ID recovery, sack lunches, and so much more. CAM is here to be a safety net for those in need. To make a donation visit our donation page. If you have any questions contact Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The holidays are just around the corner! And CAM’s Emergency Christmas Store is quickly approaching! The CAM Christmas Store provides an emergency, free shopping experience for those less fortunate in San Antonio facing a severe crisis. More than 1,500 children will have an incredible Christmas despite the fact their families are facing a serious financial crisis. Parents are able to select gifts, books, stuffed animals, socks, gloves and other goodies that their children will love, free of charge. Join us in sharing the joy of the season and making a difference in the lives of San Antonio families by donating new toys and/or hosting a toy drive at your home, work, or church. Click here to access our flyer for more information.
During the months of October and November CAM collects Thanksgiving-type foods for those in need for our Share Your Harvest Food Drive. We collect everything from canned pumpkin, green beans, corn and other canned goods, along with instant mashed potatoes, boxed stuffing, etc. Often the families we serve won’t be able to have a traditional Thanksgiving meal and furthermore are simply hungry for food in general. Through the generous donation of individuals, churches, and work place offices, the special Thanksgiving items will be a gift and surprise for families that come to CAM seeking food.
We’d love it if you would consider collecting some of these items for CAM’s clients, or even hosting your own donation drive! Gather your friends, family members, coworkers, church groups, etc. and ask them all to help you collect these items for CAM. We have a flyer here you can download and print, or download and email, to your tribe that lists further information. You can drop off your donations to our downtown campus at 110 McCullough Avenue Monday-Thursday between 8am and 3pm or Fridays between 8am and Noon. For more information about CAM’s Share Your Harvest Food Drive, please contact Sarah at email@example.com today!
“We want to thank everyone who joined us along our journey this past October celebrating CAM’s 45th Anniversary! CAM was founded back in October 1977 by 9 downtown churches, and today, CAM is supported by over 100 churches, along with individuals, families, businesses, foundations, and many more. These past 45 years have been filled with so much growth for CAM. No one ever thought CAM would grow into this ministry serving over 70,000 people every year, but here we are, serving those in need daily with safety net needs to get them back on their feet. We at CAM are honored and grateful for the continued support of our mission these past 45 years. We truly feel God has continued to bless CAM by sending us donors, supporters, advocates, cheerleaders, etc. We wouldn’t be able to do what we do on a daily basis if it weren’t for the support of each of you. We thank you, we honor you, we cherish you, and we send you all so much love. Please take a moment to watch a short video from CAM’s President/CEO wrapping up CAM’s 45th Anniversary campaign!
