Upcoming Volunteer Events
With the new year in full swing, we have several new giving opportunities and events popping up to help those in need this spring! We have three ways that you can get involved helping others in the upcoming months.
1) Pre-packing care canisters event
Our first opportunity is coming up on Saturday, February 25th from 1-4PM at the Mitscoots warehouse. Come join us for some great fun and help us pack up care canisters that we will give away to those in need at our SXSW Pop Up Care Village and the Women’s Resource Fair! For this event, we want to pack up at least 500 care canisters with snacks, socks, and hygiene items.
How you can help:
This is a great way for you and your kids, family, friends and coworkers to get together and give back to the community and have fun while doing it! RSVP on our Facebook Event Page.
2) Give New or Lightly Used Clothing for Homeless Youth
We need you to bring us clothing for our upcoming Pop Up Care Village event (description below). All sizes for men and women ages 18-25 are appreciated. Clothing items needed include new t-shirts, jeans and shorts. You can bring clothing items to us at our offices anytime between now and March 1st. Our address is 2505 East 6th street with the lime green front door, and donation times are Monday through Friday from 10AM- 4PM or on Saturday from 1PM-5PM.
3) South by Southwest Pop Up Care Village
On Saturday March 11th from 9AM-1PM, we will be partnering with several other organizations here in Austin to serve about 100-150 youth experiencing homelessness. This event will take place in downtown Austin at 8th and Neches St.
The event will be offering healthcare, hygiene, haircuts and shower services as well as social services. There will be free food for the youth along with live music, art and a photo booth offered. We will also have a closet set up, with the clothing donated from the description above, for the youth to choose from.
Comments will be approved before showing up.
