It’s almost giveaway time! We’ve gotten some heartwarming donations in the last couple of weeks.
We had an email request from an individual who needed a backpack that could fit a laptop. One of our volunteers, M.G., stepped forward with this backpack:
The Wells Branch Neighborhood had their October Extreme Clean event, and the residents donated over 640 items!
You guys rock!! Thank you so much!
We also had a few donations that we weren’t able to get pictures of: They came from G. & L. S., K.W., and V.M.. Thank you all very much. We couldn’t do what we do without our donors!
Last, but certainly not least – thank you to the members of our Gettin’ Knotty group! This month, our members created 41 hats, 7 scarves, and 17 washcloths. Many works in progress…
And many DONE!
Thank you F.O., M.V., V.M., K.B., and K.B.! And… F.O. gave us 3 huge bags of yarn! We’ll be able to knit & crochet a ton of warm, snuggly things with it! We are definitely looking forward to diving into that.
It’s not too late to make a donation for Sunday! Email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll pick it up. Or come on down to the giveaway! Bring your donation, meet our volunteers… we’d love to have you!
If you’re not in the Austin area & would like to make a donation, check out our Amazon wish list. It won’t get here for this Sunday’s giveaway, but it would put us one step ahead for November!
If you aren’t able to donate at this time, you can still help:
*Print our Warmth Drive flyers & post them on community bulletin boards.
*Share our posts on Facebook and Twitter.
*Talk about us to friends or family that might be interested.
Getting the word out is a huge part of what we do!
We are so glad to be part of the Austin community. Lots of love around these parts!
See you Sunday!
