Although I no longer hold office once again next year I will be continuing my 13-year
Christmas tradition of hosting a donation drive for The Austin Street Shelter, www.austinst.org

As in past years I will pay for your breakfast on the condition that you bring much needed supplies that equal or exceed the cost of your breakfast.

If you can spare two hours to help those less fortunate than us then I look forward to seeing you on Sunday January 3 2021 at the Café Brazil in Deep Ellum at 9.00 am

We will have breakfast and then convoy the short distance to the Shelter with our donations. Café Brazil is located at 2815 Elm Street, Dallas, 75226-1508. In light of the current health concerns masks and social distancing will be in place

This years immediate needs are for:

Long Sleeved T-Shirts
Sweatshirts
New Socks
Gloves
New Underwear
Jackets
Cough Drops
Shoes
Blankets

These people live on the streets during the day so duffle bags and luggage to hold their belongings are very useful. Obviously other items of warm clothing are always welcome and so are any of these items below.

• Men’s Shoes (over size 10)
• Toothbrushes
• Backpacks
• Lightweight Blankets
• Kleenex
• Toothpaste
• Toilet Rolls
• Gently Used Rolling Luggage
• Rolling Duffle Bags
• Bar Soap
• Hand Cleanser

Cash donations go a very long way and are very welcome.

$5.00 provides two full-day bus passes, allowing Austin Street clients to get to work, doctors appointments, and other social services as needed

$10.00 buys 400 cups of hot coffee for the men and women who seek shelter.

$15.00 provides a meal, hot shower, and a safe place to sleep for a resident at our shelter

$25.00 improves employment opportunities for a client by providing a semester of GED or literacy classes

$100.00 buys 20 warm blankets for clients seeking safety and comfort

$250.00 outfits 100 men and women with a brand new pair of socks and underwear

$500.00 provides a month's stay including food, clothing, and a safe place to sleep at our transitional living facility
