“Service to man will help your divinity to blossom, for it will gladden your heart and make you feel that life has been worthwhile. Service to man is service to God, for God is in every man, every living being and in every stone and stump.”

– Baba

Thank you all for your generosity last pickup with the groceries, toiletries, and clothes!  No matter how little you may think it is, it goes a long way!  The vibrant gratitude from one of the ladies at Austin Street helping with bringing in the supplies went straight into my heart, and I am sending it to yours!

Please join us in collecting food for the North Texas Food Bank and the items listed below for the Austin Street Shelter. Please collect your unused toiletries wherever you vacation (usually they will give you extra if you explain what you are collecting them for) for the folks at the shelter. 

Any food item, including spices, whole packaged meals, (nothing refrigerable or perishable and no meat with the exception of frozen breakfast foods), sauces, beans, pasta, nuts, nut butters, crackers, protein powder, canned soups, condiments, etc., anything you would eat yourself and think others would enjoy is great for the food bank.
