Giveaways happen once a month on a Sunday morning in Downtown Austin. Dates are announced on this website, Facebook and Twitter. Please arrive at 8:50 AM for brief announcements and set up. We open the line at 9:00 AM sharp and finish by 10:00 AM, sometimes earlier, so being on time is a good thing. If you’re bringing items, please drop them off at the truck so they can be logged in before distribution. If you’re staying to help us, great! Please click here to read a short PDF document before you arrive. One of our volunteers wearing a yellow bandana will point you in the right direction.
We meet in the 8th Street parking lot, under the Interstate 35 overpass. We set up in the northwest corner of the parking lot, closest to the Austin Police Department headquarters. You can park in the lot right where we set up.
One thought on “Next Giveaway – April 17”
So, I went down there today and gave out stuff. While I was standing there I couldn’t help but to think “this could be me”. I had to hold back the tears. I watched as some people took more than one item, I didn’t have the heart to say no.
I’m home now, back in bed, and I can’t stop getting the picture of the homeless kids out my mind, or the people that looked exactly like me: my age, clean shaven, one guy even had a dog. The swell of emotions that have built up in me are now streaming down my face.
Am I alone in feeling this way?
