Katy Christian Ministries Needs

• nonperishable foods
• personal care items
• cleaning supplies and disinfectants
• household paper products (paper towels, toilet paper, etc)

We are serving an average of 140 families per day using a modified “Carhop” system so clients remain in their vehicles while getting the food and supplies they need. Donors can stay home and shop online if needed, and have the items shipped directly to KCM at 5506 1st Street, Katy, Texas 77493. Deliveries should be scheduled during business hours Monday-Thursday, 9am-5:00pm.

Our Food Pantry is classified as an “essential service” under the Stay at Home order. Volunteers who are healthy and not in high risk categories are welcome to signup for shifts at our Food Pantry helping pre-pack bags, made pickups of donations from local grocery stores, or even answering phones as we are experiencing a very high call volume. Proper precautions are being taken for limiting group sizes, disinfecting surfaces, and providing access to handwashing facilities, in order to do our part to keep people safe while still serving.

• Volunteers can sign up here:https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70A0D4FABAB2AA6FD0-food.

• For questions, please email volunteer@ktcm.org.

• 2 webcams to conduct virtual counseling services with clients
• disposable face masks for safe distribution of critical food assistance to the community.

Operational funding to provide continuity of services. Our budget is being deeply affected by lack of sales/closure of our two Resale Store locations and we ask for help from the community to help bridge this gap as we modify programs to continue serving an increasingly at-risk population. According to our newly published 2019 Impact Report, $.90 cent of every dollar entrusted to KCM directly funds the programs and services we provide free to the community. The full report is available at: www.ktcm.org/impact or see attached PDF copy. Donations can be made securely through the Donate button on our website at www.ktcm.org.
