Interfaith Ministries (HIM) was recently awarded a grant from The
George G. And Alva Hudson Smith Foundation for the purchase of a
new freezer. This will allow HIM to have more frozen items on hand
for its clients. According to HIM volunteers, the freezer has been
needed by the organization for some time. HIM would like to thank
the Smith Foundation for supporting its mission to provide assistance
in Hillsboro and surrounding communities.

Volunteers with Hillsboro Interfaith Ministries
(HIM) accepted a $10,000 donation from Oncor Tuesday, May 25, as part of the company’s efforts to
support community non-profit organizations in its service area. Oncor is committing $1 million to
help those impacted by the February winter storm. “We know that countless organizations have faced
extreme hardships over the past year, first from the pandemic to the aftermath of the devastating
winter freeze,” said Oncor Area Manager Ignacio Vazquez. “Oncor has a long-standing tradition of
supporting those most in need in our communities, and this moment is no different given the difficult
circumstances so many people are facing,” he said.
