Make casseroles for SYMin Family Breakfast Outreach
Know a killer hash brown casserole recipe? Then we need your help! Calling volunteers to help us with a pilot outreach at University Presbyterian Church. SYMin will host a breakfast Wednesday mornings, and we need volunteers who can donate frozen casseroles. These casseroles will feed our very hungry clients and start their days off well with a hearty, warm meal.
Make sandwiches for our clients
Volunteer and help us out by purchasing and building sandwiches for our clients. We use these sandwiches on our outreaches and during our groups and activities on site. Trauma-informed care suggests that food should always be accessible, so we provide something for our clients to eat throughout each day. Sign up to make sandwiches.
Donate camping, self-care or outreach bags
Support us by providing the food and toiletry bags we provide clients on site and during our bi-weekly outreaches in the community. We've made it easy for you by providing a list of components that you purchase, assemble into sturdy (non-paper) bags and bring to us once completed. We encourage you to make notes of encouragement as well to put in the bags — clients love these! This can be completed as an individual, or recruit some friends to help!

Provide treats for our clients to enjoy on holidays or regular days
We love to celebrate with clients and mark holidays with special treats and activities! Whether it's Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Halloween or something in between, we would love for individuals to volunteer by providing yummy snacks. We daily provide snacks to our clients, so even if it's not a holiday, feel free to donate treats! We will use them!
Donate in-kind to fill our Sunshine Store
The Sunshine Store is frequented by our clients looking for new clothes, shoes, accessories and home goods. We happily accept any in-kind donations including everything from pantry items, books, housewares, camping equipment and medicine. We use all of it to fill our store and meet clients' needs. Not sure if we need something, feel free to call our helpline to check. 512-553-3796. Let us know if you plan to drop something off here.
