Hey hey, everyone!!!! So our inventory has been completed and we've updated both our website for the next giveaway, AustinAHH.org/Next , and Amazon wishlist, a.co/7gs7evW, with what is needed.
November 12th is our next giveaway date which gives us just over 2 weeks to pull together that make it a success. As was mentioned in the last blog post recapping October's giveaway, some of the special items that were requested are things like reading glasses (+2.75 strength or higher), coats/jackets, and backpacks (even used ones will work provided it is not full of holes).
If you have more ideas or any questions, please comment below. We'd love to hear them.
A rainy start to the day, but we were left with a cool and crisp morning to have our October giveaway. Over 160 people went through our line to receive toiletries, juice, socks, and other items, including 2 people with motor disabilities whom we packed bags for.
The week before any giveaway, I collect all of the donations that people have sent to via our wishlist or in person and start sorting things into bins. These bins will go directly on the table (to be combined with donations brought by other Austin AHH volunteers).
