What we're about
If you have limited time but would like to volunteer and make a positive difference in our community without just writing a check, this is the group for you. As we go about our lives over every two-month period, we will collect items needed by a selected nonprofit, then meet with all our amassed items for a great meal and socializing. Then, one or two of us will deliver the items to the nonprofit that week. Examples: collecting toiletries and backpack items for the nonprofit Lifeworks to give to homeless teens in their street outreach; collecting books or culling our own bookshelves to give to the nonprofit Inside Books Project, which provides books free of charge to Texas inmates. Becoming a member of Make a Difference Austin will familiarize us with the terrific nonprofits in our community and provide an excellent opportunity to meet and socialize with other generous Austinites who also want to make a difference! Please join us!
