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!
With the current political climate, life has not been easy for people relocating to the US. Help us welcome refugees, their families, agency workers, and the surrounding neighborhood for Austin Refugee Day Festival (https://atxrefugeedayfestival.com/) , and honor the strength of refugee families in our community.
Organized by the American Red Cross and other local agencies, the festival will have information tables, family activities, food, and a soccer clinic.
AAK volunteers will meet up at the registration, then will be disbursed to different areas to help out. Especially needed are persons who know soccer and speak foreign languages! Our group is signing up for the 11am - 2pm shift, but other timeslots are also available - see webpage below.
