Mustang Cat Partners with CCSC to Fight the Effects of Poverty in Houston

Dec 08, 2015
Mustang Cat, the Caterpillar equipment and engine dealer for Southeast Texas, is pleased to partner with and award the Christian Community Service Center (CCSC) with funding to alleviate the effects of poverty in the Houston area.

The funding will assist CCSC’s Emergency Services-Central program, a center designed to supply people in crisis, including children, elderly and those who struggle with disabilities with everyday living essentials.

“We are committed to the people within the communities we serve, with a stated interest in supporting organizations that provide basic human needs such as food, shelter, clothing, health and security,” said Brad Tucker, president of Mustang Cat.  “This donation will help provide hundreds of vulnerable individuals, many of them children, with the proper resources that are vital to their health and sense of family security.”

CCSC’s long-term goal is to help families discover resources to mitigate their specific challenges and guide them toward greater self-sufficiency.  In 2014, 22,181 persons in crisis were assisted at Emergency Services-Central with food, clothing, agency referrals, or financial assistance for rent, utilities and required medical services.

“Without caring community sponsors such as Mustang Cat, the work of CCSC would not be possible,” said Michelle Shonebeck, CCSC executive director. “We are grateful to count Mustang Cat as one of our new partners.  Hunger in Houston is still very real with many families struggling to put food on the table.  We applaud Mustang Cat for their commitment to provide aid and hope for a brighter tomorrow for less-fortunate Houstonians.”
