Amplify Austin, a 24-hour celebration of giving, challenges our community to raise four million dollars starting at 5:00 P.M. on Thursday, March 20. With so many great participating nonprofits to choose from, some of which are our partners in ending hunger, it can be a daunting task to decide how you’ll help make Austin a great place for everyone to live.
We recently took a look at calls to 2-1-1 to learn more about what are the most pressing needs of our community. The need for food assistance has not only skyrocketed 1,828 percent in the past five years, but it has also been the Number 1 call for assistance in the greater Austin area the past two years.
We need your help to make the Number 1 call for help our city’s Number 1 priority by raising 250,000 meals in 24 hours. Here’s how you can make an impact on hunger:
- Schedule your gift online at http://www.amplifyatx/cafbtx.
- Join us for the Kick-off Happy Hour at J. Blacks on Thursday, March 20, 6:00 P.M. – 8:00 P.M. and our Morning Commute Power Hour at Rudy’s on 360 Friday, March 21, 8:00 A.M. – 9:00 A.M. We’ll be on hand to cheer you on, accept donations and share free food.
- Let everyone know why you chose to donate to help the hungry by sharing on Facebook and Twitter. Here are a couple of videos you can use to share our message of answering the Number 1 call for help.
