Hello CPMS Parents/Guardians,

As many of you already know, CPMS participates in a canned food drive every year. This event always becomes HUGE on this campus, with amazing results! This year, our annual drive will run October 31 - November 16th.  The academic teams will, once again, compete for prizes, courtesy of Student Council. Last year, we raised 6,000 pounds of food, and over $3,000 in monetary donations. We WILL take checks, but they need to be made out Hill Country Community Ministries or (HCCM) and need to have a phone number and driver’s license number on them. Hill Country Community Ministries serves an average of 600 families in crisis,‚Äč each month. Any donations of non-perishable foods, toiletries or money your family can contribute will be greatly appreciated. 

This year, we are abiding by the following rule:
Each dollar donated = 1 pound of credit for the student’s academic team

At the completion of the drive, we will round up to the nearest pound.

Here are some items the food pantry is in high need of:

Canned:

  • Stew
  • Tuna
  • Chicken
  • Chili
  • Soup
  • Spaghetti O’s
  • Tomatoes
  • Spaghetti sauce
  • Peas
