We are having so much fun watching the birds from our patio, especially the moms feeding the babies! These adorable ones are one more sign of spring. So many lessons from Mother Nature to us…
While in the midst of spring, of course it is a great time to renew, readjust, and revisualize things. How about looking into the closet and finding some shoes that have never been worn, or clothes that have been hanging there for a while and gifting them to someone whom they can serve? Or possible old working electronics or anything that the houseless folks might need (see updated list below). No childrens’ clothes are accepted there.
We are continuing to pick up food for the North Texas Food Bank besides Austin Center, as it seems that is in need more than ever right now, so any NON-PERISHABLE food is eagerly accepted including dry goods, canned goods, protein powder, dried snacks, dried fruits, sauces, whole packaged meals, grains, etc. Please NO MEAT products.
Thank you for helping those who are challenged in many ways at the Austin Street Center and those serviced by the North Texas Food Bank.
We will be giving a text on Sunday to you to let you know what the pickup schedule is approximately. Please let us know if you have a pick up for Monday the 23rd. THX so much!
