History

We are the largest and oldest community food pantry in Ellis County. Our founder, Mattie Borders, was born August 26, 1912. Miss Mattie chose to address the hunger problem in her community by opening a small community food pantry out of her own home in 1982. The service grew and was later named Waxahachie Care Services (WCS) in 1993. One of Waxahachie Care's most fundamental goals is to simply help people make their lives better. Miss Mattie continued to love and serve her community for decades until she passed away July 16, 2018. She was 105 years old. Miss Mattie's legacy is a magnificent example of "loving your neighbor as yourself."

We want to thank our community businesses, organizations, churches, individuals and volunteers who choose to continue Miss Mattie's legacy by serving the needs of others around them. Waxahachie Care continues to exist because of your generous donations of time and resources. 

Thank You!
