BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) – Catholic Charities of Central Texas is hosting a community drive-thru event on Saturday, January 29 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. They distribute diapers, wipes and hygiene kits to anyone in need in the Brazos Valley community – no questions asked. It will be located at their office at 1410 Cavitt Ave in Bryan, Texas. John Paci, director of the Brazos Valley unit of Catholic Charities of Central Texas, joined First News at Four today to talk about the event.
Paci described the origins of the events, explaining that before the pandemic they held an annual fundraising luncheon, but last year they replaced it with a safer drive-through donation day for COVID. The day was a success and they gave out many items to those in need and they received a lot of donations. This year they are holding the event on a Saturday so more people can attend. For anyone who wants to help, they are always accepting donations.
Saturday at the event they will have free tacos. They will also have prizes including packs and plays, baby supply kits, shower beauty kits, and laundry kits.
Those interested in getting more support from Catholic Charities of Central Texas can call their Brazos Valley office at 979-822-9340 or visit www.ccctx.org.
