Austin Atheists Helping the Homeless
AustinAHH.org / Atheists.Help
Goodness, this was an absolutely *HUGE* giveaway this morning; 9 volunteers armed with 320+ bags came out to make this happen (and we needed all the trunk space!!). The demand for tents and sleeping bags was still very high, so a big thank you to Foundation Beyond Belief for providing Winter Storm Relief Grants to provide these items to our community. We actually went to pick up more tents for several folks who still didn't have one.
Foundation Beyond Belief is raising money and working with local Beyond Belief Network teams to provide direct aid (as they are the fastest boots-on-the-ground and know better about what is needed in each locale). Thousands have already been distributed to Texas BBN teams thus far. If you'd like to contribute to this fund, please visit their Give Lively Donation page.
Austin AHH will be heightening our food response for the next giveaway, as well as look to replace damaged sleeping bags, sleeping pads, and even tents that were lost, water-logged or destroyed for those experiencing homelessness. We have received a grant to help defray some of the costs of this program from Foundation Beyond Belief, so that will go a long way to make this effort possible. To aid in those efforts, please visit our PayPal donation link page. Thank you SOOO much for the support ya'll have shown this month.
