Helping Families Have a Merry Christmas!
For families who find themselves in crisis, or just unable to make their budget stretch to put gifts under the tree, we salute the many agencies, faith-based groups and individuals who give back during the Christmas season. We have had the privilege of partnering with the Texas State Guard over the past two years, who gave out thousands of toys to children at Burnet and Dobie Middle Schools. Celebration Church and Covenant Presbyterian Church provided hundreds of turkey dinners with all the trimmings. The Austin Police Department, through Blue Santa, provided food and gifts for 500 families through our Family Resource Centers. These are just a few examples, along with a number of individuals who have contributed gift cards and
written checks to support our neediest families. These Christmas heroes helped us make the season brighter for over 3,500 AISD families. THANK YOU, and have a blessed and peaceful holiday season.
