Thank you Austin Apartment Association!
We appreciate your service to HACA residents through the Doc & Gayle Young Food Drive for 27 years.
A heartfelt thanks to your members for all they do to raise funds that go toward purchasing more than 1,000 Thanksgiving meals for low income families in Austin, and for personally volunteering each year to knock on doors and deliver food items to residents at several housing sites.
Your contribution makes the holidays more special for HACA families. Thank You!
