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.
It was an extremely humid start to the day, but volunteers came on out to get our mission done. We served just under 250 people in about 1 hour and 15 minutes; in fact, this giveaway had to go longer to fully accommodate those going through the line.
Thanks to the 22 volunteers that came out to make this giveaway happen today. We served about 200 people in 45 minutes!!!! It was hot and very muggy, making everyone sweat copiously so almost every bottled water was dished out.
Your friendly, Austin AHH Coordinator, Phil
