During this Texas Longhorn football season, Workers Assistance Program and Youth Advocacy coordinated several fundraisers at the AFL-CIO building parking lot selling parking spots to sports fans heading to the game. A big thanks goes out to the AFL-CIO for letting us use their parking lot. We also want to thank everyone the staff who participated at WAP, YA, and all of our happy parkers who donated to our Client Assistance Fund.
The funds we receive from these events are used to provide youth or a family with bus passes, rent & utility assistance, gift cards for food or clothing, school supplies, education assistance, and other basic needs that need to be met.
We want to extend a special thanks to the Austin Texas Local No. 299 of the American Postal Worker’s Union for their generous donation to the Client Assistance Fund. They were a pleasure to share a parking lot with last weekend, and we wish them luck going forward.
We are planning more fundraising events in the coming months. Thank you so much for your continued support!
