What a day!!! 23 volunteers, including many first-time attendees, gave out toiletries and other assistance to about 200 folks this morning! Once again, thanks so much to everyone that donated their time, clothing, items and money to make this giveaway happen. Without a doubt, we couldn't do what we do best without your support.
It was a wonderful day today; much thanks to over 25 volunteers to that came out to make it work!! About 160 people went through our line to obtain deodorant, coffee, gloves, socks and so much more. There were quite a few interesting characters that came up to the table this time around.
27, yes, 27 volunteers, little helpers included, came together to aid over 180 folks in the downtown Austin area. Combined with our winter-focused giveaway in December, we've given out about 220 blankets, 190 pairs of gloves, 70 heavy cotton shirts and lots of knitted hats to our community. Shout-out to those that donated for the Winter Blanket Drive that helped make this, in part, happen.
Your friendly, Austin AHH Coordinator, Phil
