Who Are We?
We are the Azle Community Caring Center. The Community Caring Center is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization helping those in need in the Azle community (76020 zip) and Azle Independent School District.
Services provided include food, clothing and winter coats, household goods, assistance with utilities, emergency dental care, the Backpacks for Kids food program, Christmas dinner boxes, as well as counseling and referrals through Catholic Charties.
Azle CCC receives NO funding from United Way or any other sources outside the community and is dependent on donations to offer assistance. Financial support comes from individuals, churches, and businesses within the community.
The Community Caring Center would like to thank those in the Azle community who consistently offer their support so that the Center can provide to those in need. Several churches in the Azle community provide some level of financial support on a consistent basis and also provide the Center with volunteer counselors that are available to clients on a daily basis.
CCC receives food donations at different times throughout the year from:
- Chicken Express.
Food drives are carried out throughout the year by different organizations such as:
- Azle Post Office
- Azle schools
- The National Honor Society of Azle High School (jam and jelly drive).
The Center also receives some money from:
- The Metropolitan Board of Missions every year
- Lord's Acre recipient.
How Can You Help?
The Community Caring Center is dependent on donations to provide our services. Donations of canned and nonperishable food and clean, lightly used clothing are always welcome as well as any household goods that are in good and usable condition. Please ask your Bible Study group, Women's Club, Church, or school to collect new items on a regular basis and bring them into the Center. Donations can be dropped off at the Center during hours of operation. Arrangements for alternate donation times can be made by calling 817-270-2962 during those hours.
Financial contributions are always welcome, encouraged, and appreciated. Checks should be made payable to the Community Caring Center (or CCC) and mailed or delivered to the Community Caring Center, 317 Commerce Street, Azle, TX 76020.
We are NOT able to accept online donations by credit card at this time. We can take donations by credit card, check, or cash at the center. We would like to meet you and show you around so you can see what we do at the center.
