SXSW Giving Event

March 14, 2016

This week the SXSW festival is in Austin, Texas and it's here in a BIG way! It means Austin will welcome people from all over the world excited about experiencing the city’s fun and unique culture, as well as discovering innovative ideas. We love that about Austin, but we also don’t want to turn a blind eye on a less appealing side of Austin, our local homeless population.


On March 15th, we will be partnering with First United Methodist Church’s Feed My People program to feed and provide 400 care packages to the local homeless population at First United Methodist Church.

 

The First United Methodist Church’s Family Life Center in downtown Austin serves the homeless and working poor population through its Feed My People program.Mitscoots will be sponsoring this upcoming breakfast and providing care packages during the event.

These care packages will include a clean pair of socks, hygiene care, snacks and more to help meet the basic needs of the transitioning homeless. We will make sure to share some pictures from the event and thank everyone for helping to make all this happen. Take a look at some of our pictures from the last SXSW Giving Event we did. 

To get involved, learn more about Feed My People for support and volunteer opportunities.
