WACO — Frugal’s Grocery Outlet located at 300 N. Valley Mills Drive in Waco (772-5300) is holding a “food drive” benefitting Caritas of Waco. Frugal’s customers are encouraged to purchase additional food items and leave them for Caritas in a designated container in the store. For added convenience, pre-made boxes of food valued at $30.00 and containing items needed by the pantry are available for purchase for only $10.00. The food drive will continue in the store for the immediate future.
“Caritas is about to enter a very busy time of year when families have greater need as their children eat more at home since school will be out for the summer,” said Buddy Edwards, Executive Director of Caritas. “Food drives such as Frugal’s become very important to Caritas during the summer since donations generally drop off at this time of year,” added Edwards.
