“Cuero Rotary Club has truly impacted DeWitt County with their support and their gift of $2,500 was matched by Cuero Community Foundation for a total of $5,000 going to CAMAL House. With continuing to see many new clients at our area food pantries, this timely donation was appreciated and needed, said Bill Blackwell, President of Cuero Community Foundation.
Cuero Community Foundation’s Food Pantry Matching Fund will continue to match funds up to $100,000 for the three food pantries in DeWitt County. However, in order to finish out the matching fund, Cuero Community Foundation has set a cutoff date of Friday, October 16, 2020 for donations they will match for the food pantry fund.

Cuero Community Foundation will continue to match funds up to $100,000 for the three food pantries in DeWitt County through the end of the year.
“ConocoPhillips has been an absolute blessing with their continued support of this matching fund. Earlier this year, they contributed $20,000 which CCF matched and, now to close out the year with another large gift of $10,000, is just incredibly generous. ConocoPhillips has been an inspiring partner on this project and we are so grateful for their continued support of our local food pantries,” said Debra Baros, VP and Secretary of CCF.
