SERVICES OFFERED: Food Pantry and Financial Aid
PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: We are a 100% volunteer organization. Our funding is the thrift store and private donations. Our brothers and sisters in need may come once a month for a couple days of
food for the entire household. Financial aid is awarded every calendar quarter. We pay utility bills, prescription copayments, medical bills, and Fees for ID cards.
Today, in solidarity with the Society of St. Vincent de Paul - Southwest Texas, we operate a thrift store located at 1145 Broadway in Kerrville, Texas. We also operate a food pantry and a financial aid office at this same location. Unpaid volunteers manage and staff all of these operations.
• Donations of clothing, furniture, books, household goods, tools and other items are sold in the thrift store. Proceeds from the store – along with second collections from Notre Dame Church and other contributions – fund our assistance activities.
• We distribute food obtained from the San Antonio Food Bank or received as in-kind donations from generous organizations such as HEB or Walmart to families in need at our food pantry and periodically throughout the year at mobile food pantries.
• The financial aid office helps people pay bills for utilities (primarily electricity, natural gas, propane and water), gasoline, transportation and other purposes.
• As opportunities arise, we also conduct a limited number of home visits every year.
ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS: Our Food Pantry is part of San Antonio Food Bank and we follow their
guidelines for qualifying our neighbors in need. We never have had someone making too much money to qualify.
APPLICATION PROCEDURE FOR CLIENT: Those who come for assistance must fill out a form stating every person that lives at their address with their birthdates. We also ask for total monthly income from the entire household.
COST TO CLIENT: None.
