Cordillera Cares: Helping Families Have a Wonderful Christmas 


Cordillera Cares has a close working relationship with Hill Country Family Services, and the mutual support has been very beneficial. Recently, we reached out to Cordillera Ranch residents and staff to donate new and gently used clothing to support their resale shop, Random Hangers. And boy did everybody show up! We collected a trailer full of donations. Random Hangers has some great finds, so the next time you are in Boerne, stop by and take a look at their merchandise at 118 West Advogt. The children’s clothing will be sold at Fabulous Finds Thrift Store at 934 N. School St. to support Kendall County Women’s Shelter. The staff at both stores were thrilled to receive this large and quality donation.

If you have more to donate, please consider these two great organizations who serve so many in our county who are in crisis. You can find more information at and 


In 2022, Cordillera Cares partnered with the Kendall County Sheriff’s Foundation Blue Santa program. Last year, 575 children received new Christmas toys with the assistance of the Kendall County Sheriff’s office, local businesses and individuals. Cordillera Cares was honored to have supplied every one of those children with a Christmas stocking full of age-appropriate toys thanks to the donations of our Club members and staff. We also had an overwhelming response from residents and employees volunteering their time to help stuff stockings and distribute at the Blue Santa event. 

This year, the Blue Santa program is looking to expand their support to include children in Comfort, Boerne’s neighboring town. Our new goal for 2023 will be to sponsor 700 stockings! 

On Wednesday, November 29, Cordillera Cares will be accepting donations from all who wish to sponsor stockings. Each stocking will be stuffed with at least $25 worth of toys, socks, winter hats, puzzles, games and goodies based on age group and gender. 

This will be Cordillera Cares’ largest philanthropic project of the year. We look forward to all the camaraderie we will enjoy through shopping, stuffing, sponsoring and supporting these Kendall County kids and the Sheriff’s Foundation.

Please join us at our annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Gold Rush on Wednesday, November 29 from 5:30 to 7:30pm in the Main Clubhouse lobby to pledge stockings for children this holiday season!



We need elves to stuff all these stockings! We will have multiple times and days for stuffing at the Cordillera Ranch Visitors Center. Watch for Club Members emails or contact us.
