Through the collaboration of The Great Ones, Encore ATX, BLF Foundation, and Black Alumni Austin, we present the LIT Initiative. LIT stands for “love inspires togetherness.” We seek to unify the community through acts of love. This holiday season, we will focus on giving back to the homeless community located in Downtown Austin.
As we end another blessed year, we want to give back to those who are less fortunate. We will be preparing lunch bags with sandwiches, chips, water, and a letter of inspiration for the homeless.
The event will take place on Saturday, November 18th from 12PM – 4PM at Huston-Tillotson University in the Dickey Lawless Auditorium. We need your help packing the lunch bags and handing them out. Our goal is to provide 200 lunch bags for the homeless.
12PM – 2PM: We will be making the lunch bags at HT University in the Dickey Lawless Auditorium.
2PM – 12PM: We will make our way towards downtown Austin and begin handing out the lunch bags.
Light refreshments will be provided for the volunteers. You will also be able to learn more about each of our organizations.
We also need your help with donations. The items we need to be donated are bread, lunch meat, individually wrapped chips, and water. If you wish to donate, please sign up here https://goo.gl/o86APx.
