Can Opener Donations, Caritas

Caritas seeks Can Opener Donations - Because of cutbacks in SNAP (Food Stamp) benefits, Waco’s local pantries have seen an increase in the number of clients coming to them for food. Many families are happy to accept canned goods, however, they don’t have can openers or the money to buy one. The Waco Regional Baptist Association and Caritas are partnering to request that churches, youth groups, women’s groups, etc donate can openers so that people who need them can have them with their food bags. Can openers can be brought to Caritas on 300 South 15th Street. For more information, call Esther Morales at 254-753-3545.
