Help provide clothing and shoes to adults and children in need in our community by purchasing Caritas Gift Cards. Make your donations directly to Caritas at 300 S. 15th St., Waco, TX 76701 (specify "Gift Cards") and we will distribute the cards to those in need, or purchase the cards and give them out yourself to people you know in need. Cards are available in $5, $10 and $25 denominations and are redeemable at either of our Caritas Thrift Stores (located at 3116 Franklin and 3016 Bellmead Drive).
