It was a hot and muggy morning in central Texas. Thanks so much to the 18 volunteers that came out today to distribute every single of our 178 bags into the community. As this was a Transit Assistance Program (TAP) Distribution Day, we definitely saw an increase in folks coming through the line.
Goodness, what a hot morning. Being in the shade is no abatement from this continuing heat streak in Texas. We had plenty of gallon jugs of water and towels to help people beat the heat just a little better. The biggest of shout-outs to people that donated via AustinAHH.org/Donate or the wishlist. It really makes a difference month after month.
Even in the morning time, it's impossible to escape the heat! Thanks so much to the amazing volunteers who came out to distribute over 170 bags throughout 3 locales around Austin.
In order to help beat the heat, we placed extra bottles of water into each prepacked bag that was handed out. In addition, we had 48 gallon jugs of water to distribute to those that live further away from the city center, including under bridges and wooded areas, and small towels that people could use to shade their faces from the Sun or wet to keep cool.
