St. Francis of Assisi Outreach
Due to the ever-changing situation with the coronavirus pandemic, our St. Francis Outreach is currently only doing client intake on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The Thrift Store remains closed at this time. For the most updated information on how St. Francis is responding to the situation, click here.
If you would like to help our neighbors in need by donating to Outreach at this time, we are in need of Walmart or grocery store gift cards in $20-30 denominations and food pantry items (see list below). They can be dropped off at Outreach from 9am-10am on Tuesday and Thursday or brought to the Parish Office during business hours. You can also make a monetary donation online directly to our Outreach Fund.
FOOD PANTRY CURRENT NEEDS:
Mac n cheese
Pinto and black Beans
Snack Crackers (cheese or peanut butter)
Diapers (size 4-5-6)
$20-30 Walmart or grocery gift cards (We never ask for digital gift cards, but only physical gift cards that are brought to the parish; Walmart preferred because they can also be used for gas)
Paper boxes or paper bags (for giving out grocery orders)
Please note, we do not have the staffing or sales to accept very much clothing or household item donations for our thrift store at this time. Please do not leave items in the wire baskets around the Church or at the doors. If you are doing spring cleaning at your house, we ask that you either hold your donations until our Outreach is back open and fully operational or contact Mary at 817-488-5444 to discuss Outreach’s current needs and to set a drop-off of your items.
