Many thanks and kisses to the 35 volunteers that came out to help aid our community today. About 235 people went through our two lines and received aid, and we had a serious army of folks to serve them, a third of which was their 1st time out there 😍🤩😘
It was a full house, and by "house" we mean library, of volunteers. 20 folks made short work of sorting a table-worth of loose toiletry donations, close to 1000 bags of wipes, floss, and cotton swabs, and organizing plain shirts into bundles to make distribution easier the next day.
THANK YOU to everyone that came out; it was an amazing day.
This Labor Day giveaway was a wild ride!! The heat and humid were unforgiving today, but the sheer number of folks that came out was staggering. All told, about 273 bags of aid were given out to our community today. We're not sure if it just the was the holiday weekend that added to the number of recipients, but 30 volunteers stood strong to lend a hand.
Your friendly, Austin AHH Coordinator, Phil
