*NEW* University Presbyterian Church/SYMin Family Breakfast Outreach
We are incredibly grateful to our partners at UPC for opening up their doors to us on Wednesday mornings for a SYMin family meal outreach. In this pilot partnership, we will serve hot breakfast to help our clients start their day off better. We are in need of SYMin volunteers who can donate frozen casseroles for the meal and others who will help heat up and serve the breakfast from 9-11am. Because this is not at our facility, we are considering this an outreach event and hope it will extend awareness of our services to new clients.
Our Austin outreaches are on Tuesdays and Thursdays from about 11:30am-2:30pm. You can either meet us at our Drop-in location or at the Austin Central Library to start. If you are interested in helping transport are team and supplies, we need volunteers for this. Our first stop will always be the Central Library from 12-1pm. After our rounds here, we will visit two additional locations from 1-2pm that are TBD.
San Marcos Outreaches:
Our San Marcos outreaches are at the Southside Community Center at 518 S Guadalupe St, San Marcos, TX 78666. We meet here from 4-6pm on Wednesdays and Fridays. The center holds a meal for the clients and we engaged with them during dinner. Staff will bring supplies that clients can receive. If you are interested in helping transport supplies, we need volunteers for this as well.
Want to support outreaches but can't attend?
We are always in need of outreach snack bags, sandwiches and self-care bags. Check out our, volunteer by meeting client needs page for more information.
