Caritas depends on donations from the community in order to provide the full range of needed services being provided to people in need. Gifts of money, food and serviceable household items (such as clothing, furniture, electronics, knick-knacks, etc.) are extremely important to Caritas.

H-E-B's "Help End Hunger" Campaign
Benefit Caritas of Waco
In the Waco community, approximately 30% of the population live below the poverty level. Many of these individuals do not know where they will get their next meal, and summer can be an especially challenging time with children at home and not eating through free/reduced price meal programs at school.
H-E-B's "Help End Hunger" campaign is supporting food banks and food pantries throughout Texas to assist people living in "food insecurity." Locally, Caritas of Waco will be the beneficiary of funds raised by this effort. In turn, Caritas will provide needed food assistance for individuals and families in the community.
At H-E-B stores in the Waco area, tear-off coupons in the amounts of $1, $3 or $5 will be available at every register. H-E-B customers can help their neighbors by adding these donations to their final grocery bills, and proceeds will go to Caritas.
The campaign runs through June 25th, and the community is encouraged to support this important effort.
For more information, contact Buddy Edwards, Executive Director of Caritas, at 753-4593, ext. 205, or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In 2012, this campaign raised more than $105,000 to help nourish and provide care for the hungry in the entire Central Texas area.
