Make A Donation
Caritas is able to provide hope to those in need, due to the generosity of community partners and donors like you. Before the pandemic, 26% of Waco families were living in poverty and unable to meet basic needs. Now, during this unprecedented time, more families than ever before, are needing assistance. Your support helps us provide people with not only hope, but food and other emergency services, and the case management resources needed to help them begin their journey out of poverty. Thank you for donating today to support our mission.
To make a donation by mail, please send a check or money order made payable to Caritas of Waco to: 300 South 15th Street, Waco, TX 76701.



Caritas serves as the distribution center for gifts-in-kind products distributed to local, statewide, and out-of-state charities through the Walmart Return Center located in Waco. Caritas receives, warehouses, and distributes much needed paper products and household items, such as toilet paper, paper towels, feminine hygiene care, soap, shampoo, diapers, and various cleaning products, to charitable organizations and other food pantries serving people in need. Last year, 3,297 charitable organizations distributed over $7 million worth of goods to their clients.

Charitable organizations receiving items from the Caritas Gifts-In-Kind program are asked to defray Caritas’ costs through a very modest and reasonable handling fee. Products are then distributed to people being served by the charitable organization. Hundreds of thousands of people have benefited from our Gifts-In-Kind program and Caritas is extremely grateful to have this partnership with the Walmart Return Center.

For more information on the Gifts-In-Kind program, please contact Gifts-In-Kind Manager, Casey Symank, at or 254-753-4593 ext. 214.


Making A Difference Together

"I support Caritas because I believe in the mission and see the need in our community. In addition to the food pantry and the many client services that are offered, I find it very beneficial that Caritas offers job training and certifications which allow the client to become self-sufficient. I encourage everyone to consider supporting Caritas, whether it be financially or as a volunteer. You’ll be amazed by the dedication of Caritas’s staff and actually see the impact of your contribution. "
