THE WOODLANDS, TX – The Woodlands Area Chamber of Commerce Diplomat Team and C.A.R.E.S. Committee have joined forces to help Community Assistance Center address an immediate need for assistance created by the recent severe weather in our area and to prepare for future needs during hurricane weather.

“Please consider helping residents in our community who have already been affected and those who may be be affected during hurricane seasons. Donations of household cleaning supplies and items for the CAC food pantry can be dropped off at the Chamber offices through June 29,” said Chamber representatives in a statement.

CAC is dedicated to providing resources to meet basic needs and improve quality of life for Montgomery County residents who require assistance to survive and thrive. In particular, the Community Assistance Center Food Pantry is a critical part of efforts to end food insecurity. Following the “client choice food pantry” model, the Client Choice Food Pantry resembles a small grocery market, where clients can select products based on their specific family needs. Fresh produce, a variety of proteins, and shelf stable selections are available at no cost to those in need. Baby care, personal hygiene items, and cleaning products are also distributed when available.

In Texas, 1 in 7 people face hunger; 16% of the population in Montgomery County is food insecure, and 1 in every 5 children in Montgomery County suffer from a lack of proper nutrition. Your donations can massively alleviate this issue. Of particular need for the pantry are:

  • Soup
  • Fruit
  • Vegetables
  • Canned Meats
  • Canned Beans
  • Pasta Sauce
  • Rice
  • Pasta
  • Peanut Butter
  • Jelly/ Spreads
  • Macaroni & Cheese
  • Cereal - Hot & Cold
  • Hamburger Helper
  • Dry Beans
  • Toiletries

Please note that because of health and safety standards CAC cannot accept dented cans, damaged products, open products, or expired food. Learn more, including how to organize your own food drive, at
