Hunger shouldn't exist, especially on Thanksgiving
Hunger is a real concern for thousand of Austin-area families. The 2010 Census showed that almost 20 percent of Travis County residents live in poverty and struggle to secure basic needs.
Last year, thanks to your generous support, El Buen Samaritano's Hands for Hope Thanksgiving Event provided 1,200 families with all the ingredients needed to prepare Thanksgiving meals. This year is El Buen Samaritano's 25th year of service, and our goal is to provide Thanksgiving Care Packages to 1,400 families on Saturday, November 19, 2011. Help us raise the awareness of hunger in our own city, by sharing this with your friends and networks!
