FAB Friar Feature: Sauter Sisters Give Back

Bishop Lynch High School Junior Riley Sauter and BL Sophomore Bella Sauter are two sisters on a mission. During the earlier days of the pandemic, these fabulous Friars noticed an increasing number of homeless people in downtown Dallas. They wanted to help, so they assembled 100 bagged sandwiches and distributed them to some of the city’s neediest citizens. When the sisters discovered that COVID-19 was making it hard for the homeless to access shelters, they doubled (and tripled) down on their efforts. 
 
These days, the sisters drop off between 300-400 lunch bags to the homeless throughout Dallas. Each bag includes a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, granola bar, chips, fruit snack or apple sauce, a sweet treat, and a protein cookie. Thanks to overwhelming support and donated supplies from local businesses, the girls have now teamed up with Family Gateway to provide hundreds of snack and breakfast bags each week to help families experiencing homelessness.  
 
BL Principal Dr. Chad Riley is proud of these Friars for living the Bishop Lynch High School mission. 
 
“Riley and Bella are truly fulfilling the BL mission to work for justice in the world. They saw a need and went to work to help others. This is a true testament to the power of Christian service,” said Dr. Riley.  
 
The Sauter sisters named their volunteer organization Feed the People. In the nearly four months since they started helping the homeless, RileyBella and their friends have prepared and distributed more than 15,000 meals. Visit their website at www.feedthepeopledallas.org to learn more.
