One of our most important goals here at camandu is to give back to the Amarillo, TX community through partnering with local charity organizations. One such charity is Faith City Ministries, an organization located downtown that provides food, clothing, spiritual ministry, furniture, household items, shelter, employment services, and recovery programs to the men, women, and children of our town.
Faith City Ministries was started in 1951 by Dick and Bea Hogan who began the mission after a call from God. Throughout the years, the mission has grown from a small rented building to Faith City Ministries as it is today. They have been serving downtown Amarillo for over 60 years through the generous donations of individuals, businesses, churches, and organizations. They have never been funded by the government and this is why we at catmandu feel it is so important to support them.
catmandu has partnered with Faith City for over 5 years and throughout that time we held coat and thermal drives every November. This year, however, Faith City actually had a surplus of coats and what they needed was first aid kits to distribute to the homeless. We held a first aid kit drive at our offices and were able to contribute some to their need.
But we’re only one business. We urge all other businesses in Amarillo to consider holding drives or raising money for Faith City or any local charitable organization.
