Thanks to everyone who came out for the October giveaway!! About 10 volunteers were out helping to serve in our community.
To everyone that sent in items, donations and brought out supplies to the tables, you rock. From those who bought toilet tissue to bananas, coffee to waters, we couldn't do it without you.
Much love to I Support the Girls - Austin, as always, for the supply of feminine hygiene products that were incorporated into the line.
Things are starting to cool off, so out focus will begin turning to materials to keep warm for our neighbors facing the elements. Blankets, hats, gloves, socks, etc will begin coming to the forefront.
We'll be back at it again on November 3rd, so keep a look out for the event soon!!

10 years in the bag !!! To everyone that has helped to make these efforts possible, so many people over so many years, we salute you. 30 volunteers came together to make this birthday giveaway happen, from those that picked up the cake, cupcakes and cookies, to those who brought extra tables, clothing, and delicious lemonade. We were able to help 237 of our community who went through the line to get what they need.
An overcast morning gave a brief respite from the 100°F weather. A huge and warm thank you to the 28 volunteers for coming together to serve 217 individuals on the 1st Sunday!! We had several new folks that joined us for the 1st time, which is always fun, and we hope they return for future giveaways.
Your friendly, Austin AHH Coordinator, Phil
