  • Thank you, Austin Local No. 299!

    This weekend, we received a very generous donation from the Austin Texas Local No. 299 of the American Postal Workers Union while operating our parking lot fundraiser during the UT football game.

    We’d like to send a huge thank you to the members for this donation. All of it will be added to our Client Assistance Fund to help for our clients in times of need.
