Helping People Follow Jesus
Eva Harkrider heads Highland’s Care Center ministry which provides assistance to families in our community. Clients make an appointment during the week to receive clothing, food, financial assistance for bills, prayer, and spiritual counsel from a Highland volunteer. Many have come to know Christ through this ministry.
The Care Center, along with the help of donations from our Body, recently provided sets of school uniforms to 165 WISD students. The Care Center is also especially busy around the holidays. Every year, they host a Toy Store, a community outreach program that allows families who are strapped financially to come buy toys at a discount for their children for Christmas. The Care Center also raises money and distributes Christmas dinners every December with the help of dedicated volunteers.
We are always accepting clothing and food donations. Please call 254.754.8923 and leave a message to arrange a time to drop off your donations. You can also call that number to inquire about volunteer opportunities with the Care Center. We could not function without the help of our dedicated volunteers!
