AUSTIN, Texas - The Society of St. Vincent de Paul Diocesan Council of Austin's Food Pantry is requesting donations so they can continue to serve the underserved and underprivileged populace during the coronavirus pandemic.
The Austin-area diocesan council is seeking nonperishable snacks, non-perishable meals, and canned vegetables. Monetary donations are also being requested to help continue to provide essential services.
On Saturday, March 28, St. Vincent handed out pre-packed bags of food at the Vincentian Family Center to households in need. The Society of St. Vincent de Paul Diocesan Council of Austin's Food Pantry is hoping with donations it will be able to continue to provide essential services to those in need.
"Right now, we need to help each other, people helping people" a volunteer named Jesse Austin told FOX 7 Austin. "St. Vincent has been doing this for years and I'm happy to help and to be doing it."
