Everyone has something to contribute. This group brings people together to give back to others. While anyone can research and choose an organization to volunteer with, sometimes work schedules and life gets in the way of actually doing it. And it's more rewarding to work as a team. We would like to focus on two focus areas of volunteering:
1. Fulfill needs of local charities that can use donated items and supplies. We do not have to meet at the organization as a group to complete.
2. Organize group activities at on-site locations of community agencies.
This group meets monthly or more on weekday evenings or weekends to work on creative projects to assist our local community. A small act of kindness can go a long way. Be a part of our positive movement!

Join Breakthrough Central Texas for a virtual community conversation with Wes Moore on educational equity. This forum will focus on collaborative next steps we can take to dismantle systemic barriers to educational opportunity in our communities. https://breakthroughctx.org/
All children should have the opportunity to benefit from the life-changing power of a college degree. However, too often, a student’s circumstances of birth – race, ethnicity, family’s income level or immigration status – predicts the educational opportunities they will be afforded. By working together to help more students get to and through college, we can create a more prosperous and equitable Central Texas for ALL who live here for generations to come.
Best-selling author and Robin Hood Foundation CEO, Wes Moore, is one of today’s most respected voices and fiercest champions for educational equity. Wes’ first book, The Other Wes Moore, a perennial New York Times bestseller, drew the nation’s attention to the fine line between success and failure in our communities and in ourselves. He is also the author of the bestselling books The Work, Discovering Wes Moore, and This Way Home.
