We Continue to Need Help!!

As the needs of the community grow, the Community Caring Center grows with it. We are currently receiving (and distributing) double the amount of food from the Tarrant Area Food Bank than we have in previous years and the community continues to step up and donate incredible amounts of food. It is such a blessing!

Thanks to all of you that care enough to help your neighbors in need!

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:
  • Albertsons
  • Brookshires
  • Chicken Express. 
  • Target
     

Food drives are carried out throughout the year by different organizations such as:

  • Azle Post Office
  • Azle schools
  • Curves
  • The National Honor Society of Azle High School (jam and jelly drive).
 
The Center also receives some money from:
  • The Feinstein Grant
  • The Metropolitan Board of Missions every year
  • Lord's Acre recipient.
