Thoughts on getting out the vote and our impact.
On August 11, 20 Blue Action Democrat volunteers joined forces with Austin Allies and Hindu Charities of America to assemble over 1300 backpacks full of school supplies for underprivileged kids in AISD, Manor ISD, and Refugee Services of Texas-Austin.
Some volunteers took their positions at four assembly lines, providing items to fill the backpacks to specification...
...while some volunteers carried and filled backpacks through the line...
...while some volunteers performed quality control to ensure that no items were missing!
Finally, the finished backpacks were loaded into vehicles to be whisked off kids headed back to school. Check out this load of backpacks headed to Refugee Services of Texas-Austin!
While it started out crazy (like most volunteers events), the leadership team put us to work and we made it happen. It was heartwarming and comforting to come together with an incredibly diverse group of people, all making a difference in our community!
Thanks so much to Erika Nowlin for coordinating the event and everyone who joined us to GSD!!
