We had a great giveaway this June, which happened to coincide with Father’s Day. We want to take just a moment to thank the dads who volunteer their time and make donations to Austin Humanists at Work. Everyone including the many dads in the giveaway line is very appreciative!
We had an easygoing start to the morning and opened just after 9 a.m. with an abundance of tables that helped us spread out our items. We’ve been getting bra donations through our drive, which lasts through the end of July, so please keep those donations of new and gently used bras coming. Many of our clients were very glad to be able to pick out new bras this month. We are thankful that the Ethical Society of Austin provided coolers and ice for our donated cans of water, helping us distribute many more cans this month than in previous months.
As we enter the summer months when participation and donations tend to dip, remember to check our needs page for the latest inventory updates and item requests.
We served a total of 209 clients this month at the giveaway, with about 30 volunteers smiling and sweating (just a little). We are looking forward to seeing everyone again for our first Volunteer Meetup next Sunday on June 23 at 3 p.m. If you have ever joined us for a giveaway, or haven’t but would like to learn more about Austin Humanists at Work, please join us at The Brewtorium Brewery and Kitchen for snacks and socializing. We’d love to see you!
Our next Giveaway is Sunday, July 21 starting at the 8:40 a.m. for setup with a 9 a.m. start time. We’d love to se you there too. In the meantime, if you want to learn more about Austin Humanists at Work, check out our FAQs and the volunteer page.
