AUSTIN (KXAN) - A church in Austin is providing an easy way for the less fortunate to get drink of water.
Crews installed a new spigot today outside Saint Austin Catholic Parish on the corner of Guadalupe and 21st.
The church provides the water at no charge so folks who have no home, and therefore no sink, can stay healthy especially during hot and dry summers.
The idea comes from Micah 6, an organization of local churches running a food pantry for the homeless.
Organizers saw a need for more available drinkable water in the city.
"We hope that this will be available to people waiting here for the bus, for people walking by, for the students traveling back in forth between university and West Campus," said Charles Kullmann, Pastor of St. Austin's Catholic Church.
Mobile Loaves and Fishes and anonymous donors from St. Austin's funded the project.
