The loss of a job or being furloughed can mean the difference between having food to eat or paying for rent and utilities. It’s a hard choice for any family, especially ones with children.  But Montgomery County Community Foundation grantee Community Assistance Center (CAC) is helping families tackle it every day.

CAC not only runs a food pantry, they pay rent, utility bills and life saving prescriptions.  The process is normally a face to face interview but with the Montgomery County’s rapid spread of CoVid 19, the staff are now taking requests for help over the phone.

They have also started a weekly Mobile Market where food is given to families as they drive through the line of groceries.  What does CAC need?  Food items such as macaroni & cheese, hot and cold cereal, dry beans, rice, pasta and pasta sauce, and all kinds of canned goods such as soup, fruit, vegetables, meats, beans.  Don’t forget they also need household supplies such as multipurpose cleaner, bleach, disinfectant wipes, bars of soap, toilet paper, paper towels and dish soap.

Donations are accepted Tuesday through Friday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.  If you need help, call 936.539.9211.
