Christian Care has received two grants to help feed the homeless and hungry.

The Hubbell-Waterman Foundation Board of Trustees has awarded a $10,000 grant to the agency, and The TJX Companies gave a $5,000 foundation grant.

Executive Director Elaine Winter said the grants will help provide food, shelter and services for hundreds of men, women and children, as well as counseling, case management, advocacy and spiritual guidance.
