St. Francis of Assisi Outreach
Due to the ever-changing situation with the coronavirus pandemic, our St. Francis Outreach building will be closed during this time. They will take emergency calls for food assistance at 817-488-5444. 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 from 9am-2pm on Tuesdays or 9am-11am on Fridays. 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)
The only items we currently have in stock are canned green beans, corn and peas so those items are NOT needed at this time.
Please note, we do not have the staffing or capabilities to accept clothing and household item donations for our thrift store at this time. If you are doing spring cleaning at your house, we ask that you hold your donations until our Outreach is back open and fully operational.
