Adult Backpack Drive
for Thursday Outreach
Help Thursday Outreach meet the needs of our homeless and formerly incarcerated brothers and sisters by donating adult backpacks this August.
Many of these folks carry everything they own with them, and backpacks make that a lot easier. We have multiple requests for backpacks every week of the year, and we never seem to have enough!
Backpacks can be new or gently used.
We are specifically looking for large, durable backpacks in neutral colors (most backpack recipients are men). No children's backpacks, please!
Backpacks can be dropped off at the parish office during normal business hours (Sun., 8:30 a.m.-1 p.m.; Mon-Thurs. 9 a.m.-7:30 p.m.; Fri., 9 a.m.-4 p.m.).
You can also order from
and ship directly to St. Austin. Please use "St. Austin Thursday Outreach" in the address, and don't forget to designate St. Austin as your charity! We are listed as "St Austin Catholic Church Austin Texas" on AmazonSmile.
Thank you for your generosity!
