Please join us for the second ever Austin Cares: Building Care Packages for the Homeless! We’ll be set up at The Vortex / Butterfly Bar again for an evening of direct action to help Austin’s homeless community feel a little more comfortable this winter. Adults and children of all ages welcome!
Here’s how it works: you bring items that would be helpful in a care pack for a homeless person, and we will have stations set up with gallon ziploc bags for you to create care packs to keep in your car and give out when appropriate. Last year most folks were able to leave with four to six care packs each, and there were over 400 total packs created! To participate, please bring at least thirty items, preferably of the same type (but ok if mixed, too)--it’s often easier and cheaper anyway to buy the same thing in bulk from places like Amazon and Costco. Please also use the pinned poll in the discussion to mark what you plan to bring, so that we don’t end up with too much of the same thing. If you have anything to add to the list, you can add a category to the poll. https://www.facebook.com/events/901167763347761/
