Panhandle Children's Foundation

Panhandle Children’s Foundation, Inc.

The Panhandle Children’s Foundation, Inc. (PCFI), was founded in 2003 to financially aid disabled, disadvantaged, or ill children throughout the surrounding area. These services are funded by donations from individuals, sponsors, and fundraisers. In 2007 PCFI was gifted a 60 acre retreat facility, Talon Point, located 17 miles SW of Dumas, TX on FM 722. PCFI utilizes Talon Point to accommodate specialized camps for disabled and disadvantaged children. We strive to retain both the diversity and flexibility to meet any type of need involving the children of our community and to meet those needs as efficiently and effectively as possible. Examples of our services: Assistance with medical supplies (wheelchairs, feeding supplies, etc.), travel costs, hotel costs for hospital visits, and school supply drives.

High Plains Food Bank

High Plains Food Bank’s mission is to alleviate hunger in the Texas Panhandle. Before COVID-19 struck, 1 in 7 people, including 1 in 5 children, faced food insecurity. Currently, about 1 in 6 neighbors, including 1 in 5 kids, struggle to have reliable access to adequate nutrition due to the ongoing effects of the pandemic. High Plains Food Bank serves as the warehouse and distribution center for a strong network of nonprofit agencies spanning 29 counties. This safety net of feeding partners includes churches, senior centers, daycares, halfway houses, soup kitchens, and other nonprofits that provide food assistance to individuals and families in need.  In addition to our agency feeding partner network, HPFB programs fill the meal gap in underserved areas. Programs include KidsCafe, The Garden, SNAP application assistance, CSFP (Commodity Supplemental Food Program), SFSP (Summer Food Service Program), and TEFAP (Texas Emergency Food Assistance Program).  High Plains Food Bank is a member of Feeding America and Feeding Texas. HPFB provides the equivalent of 6 meals with every dollar donated, and 96-cents of every dollar goes directly to food and feeding programs!  The need is real, and your help is critical. Please consider helping solve local hunger by making a one-time or recurring donation on our secure donation page. HPFB holds a 4-star rating by Charity Navigator, the highest possible rating for nonprofit fiscal responsibility, transparency, best practices, and ethics.   We are proud to have this organization as one of our honored recipients!

Catholic Charities of The Texas Panhandle

Meet one of our past recipients, Catholic Charities of the Texas Panhandle! We have worked with them to benefit their Hunger Project and Youth Shelter. The food pantry program allows participants to take care of their food needs without sacrificing funds for other necessities. The food bank, a Community Impact Project of the United Way of Amarillo/Canyon, provides a free, healthy supply of food for those on a fixed income, every month! The store is for both those age 55 and over or those with disabilities of any age. Just like Panhandle Oilmen's Foundation, this organization relies on volunteers and donators to operate. The Pearl Longbine Cottage emergency youth shelter is there for children ages 5-17 who need safety and a sense of security. All of their basic needs are provided for including shampoo, toothpaste, towels, brushes, socks, food, and a comfortable bed. Looking for a way to help support Catholic Charites of the Texas Panhandle? Visit their website here!
