A celebration of 6 years couldn’t have gone any better than it did last Sunday. Not only did Austin Atheists Helping the Homeless celebrate 6 years, but it was a record breaking morning all thanks to the hard work and dedication of the 40 volunteers who came. Laid out on six, 6 foot tables, a coffee station and clothing island we had a record breaking selection of 3861 pieces that was donated over the past month to serve an also record breaking 202 people who came through our line. We had probably the largest selection of different items on our line to date.
Since August ATXAHH’s 50 States Challenge 2.0 has brought in donations from 10 states: California, Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia. The challenge will be running until the end of September so it’s not too late to fill in your state! Lets beat last years challenge of 16 states and the Dominican Republic. Check out our 50 States Challenge 2.0 page for more details. We also can’t do it without word of mouth. Pass out our webpage to your communities, friends and family.
One of our most frequently asked questions is, what do we need? Have you looked at our Donate page on our website? You can find most of what we accept and what we can’t accept. ATXAHH also sends out a monthly “Traffic Light Report” which will tell you what we have in abundance and items we are in dire need.
