Dear Reverend Dr. Hall and Friends,
Thank you for your donation in the amount of $259. 15 to Caritas of Austin, which we received from the Southwest Texas Conference of the United Methodist Church.
Your gift brings us closer to our vision of a community where there is respect for all individuals, hope for those experiencing poverty and opportunities for self reliance. Our mission of providing a network of services for those experiencing poverty begins with a safety net for emergencies and then provides resources for clients to reach self-sufficiency.
This year Caritas will…
- Serve 20,000 adults and children
- Provide 2,725 households with rent and utility assistance
- Serve 100,000 hot meals in the Community Kitchen
- Provide take-home groceries for 70,500 meals
One day we hope poverty will be history and homelessness will be unacceptable. Each of us can help improve this community – thank you for helping Caritas of Austin make a difference.
