AUSTIN, TX —Realty Austin is proud to be the Presenting Sponsor of the 10th Annual Touch-a-Truck benefiting SAFE | Austin’s Children’s Shelter. We are going virtual this year with the all-new Touch-A-Truck Virtual Ride Along series! Since the beginning of the pandemic, SAFE has seen an increased need for safe housing and is looking to the community to help uplift their programs. Many of SAFE’s clients move into the Shelter with nothing and need help to build a new home. Donations to cover the unforeseen costs on the campus due to COVID are needed most right now and Realty Austin is on a mission to help them buy necessary shelter supplies, cleaning products, and baby care products.
Every Wednesday this fall, kids, and families of all ages can enjoy and explore online the vehicles they’ve seen in the movies, books, or driving around town – from construction trucks and ambulances to school buses and police cars. Realty Austin agents generously give part of their commissions to support the women and children living at SAFE shelters. Today we are asking you to support this online event at any level you are comfortable donating:
$25 – 1 BABY CARE BATH SET (LOTION, SHAMPOO, BODY WASH)
$50 – STUDENT DISTANCE LEARNING (MP3 PLAYER + HEADPHONES)
$75 – CLEANING SUPPLIES (1 MONTH SUPPLY)
$100 – TWIN BED SHEETS + PILLOW (2 NEW SETS)
$250 – DIAPERS FOR 1 CHILD (3 MONTH SUPPLY)
$500 – HEALTHY MEALS (5 GIFT CARDS TO HEB/WAL-MART)
$1,000 – DIAPERS FOR 1 CHILD (1 YEAR SUPPLY)
Monetary donations are what SAFE needs most to buy necessary cleaning supplies, twin bed sheet sets and pillows, mother and baby care sets with lotion, and student distance learning support with generic mp3 players and headphones. To provide healthy meals for the families, HEB and Walmart gift cards are always appreciated too.
Please consider making an impact on these lives by giving what you can.
