Summer Food Drive

    There is always high demand and lower donations during the summer so now is the time to give a little extra! 

    Summer Food Drive is Bethany’s special push to collect non-perishable food items for Hill Country Community Ministries, HCCM, and Reveal food banks. There is always high demand and lower donations during the summer so now is the time to give a little extra! 

    Paper bags will be available after in-person worship and outside the Galilee Bldg.

    • Donations can be dropped on off on Sundays in June in the Worship Center or anytime in the “Food Drive” donation bin outside the Galilee Bldg. (no bag required).
    • Monetary donations are appreciated and can be made through Bethany’s fund for Summer Food Drive Crossroads.

    In 2020, HCCM was able to continue to serve our community with drive-thru and curbside service, helping over 13,400 families and distributing over one MILLION pounds of food! So far in 2021, HCCM has distributed 178,224 pounds of food (equivalent to 37 pickup trucks), and served 4,575 families through the Food Pantry, Community Cupboard and Fresh Food For All and other programs.  

    These groups are making a big difference in the community. Here are some of the things that participants are saying:

    “I come to this food pantry for about 10 years. I am very happy the way they do pray and talk with me. They are here come rain or shine. I am thankful for the food that given me.  God Bless you all.” –Ed, Reveal

    “I appreciate the quality of food at Reveal. I have started volunteer at Reveal to give back. The volunteers are cooperative and good spirited, and they accept me working with them. I love working as a volunteer because everyone is nice and friendly.” –David, Reveal
