Once again next year I will be continuing my personal 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 6 2019 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.

This years immediate needs are for:

Long Sleeved T-Shirts
New Socks
New Underwear
Cough Drops

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 any of these items are always welcome:

• 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

Help us create Starter Kits for guests moving into their own apartments!
Imagine moving into a new home… there’s a lot of stress, a lot of excitement, and a lot of work to be done. Now imagine moving in without any of those basic things you need to fully function in your new space. That’s the reality for many of our guests who move from Austin Street and into a home. But YOU can help! We are collecting these items to provide a strong start to men and women whose lives are starting over. You can use this as a shopping list and donate a full kit, or buy one or two items to help us stock up.

Laundry basket
Laundry soap
Shower curtain liner and rings
2 plates
2 packs of forks, teaspoon, tablespoon and butter knife
2 pc steak knife
Can opener
Kitchen towel
2 plastic tumblers
Small baking pan
Storage containers
Radio alarm clock
Bath towel

$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 at Austin Street Center

$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 at our shelter

$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
