Much love to all the (COVID-limited) volunteers for both the pre-packing and the distribution side of things.
We had enough bags left over to ensure that volunteers were also able to distribute items closer to their neck of the woods, places like under Highway 183 and also more north at Airport and I-35.
A huge and wonderful shout out to a certain elected official's office!! With their support, we were able to give masks to every single recipient this time around *yay*!!
As always, all the to I Support the Girls - Austin, of the national group I Support the Girls, for providing hygiene supplies for this giveaway and to the Atheist Community Of Austin
and Freethinkers Association of Central Texas for helping to provide items that were stuffed into bags.
Since the next giveaway falls on the day after Halloween, we will be having the pre-packing on October 24th instead, with the distribution happening on our regularly scheduled day of November 1st.
We've also launched our winter item drive campaign and are now 10% of the way to our goal of $2,500. Please visit AustinAHH.org/winter to get to the campaign and donate to these efforts.
Thanks so much y'all and stay safe!!!
