The Austin Angels...

by Susan Brubaker on February 1st, 2011


This month’s guest blog is from Susan Brubaker from Austin Angels. The Angels have become great friends of Restore Austin and amazing partners. They do some amazing work here in the Austin area, and we thought it would be great to give them the platform of our monthly guest post to speak to you:

Our mission: It doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from, what your faith is, what your social economic class is, race, sex, color, age etc.. We welcome EVERYONE to volunteer with us! All we ask is that you have a generous heart and a desire to want to help people.

We are an organization mostly known for serving the children of Austin.

Below is a list of some of the service projects that we accomplished in 2010.

  • January & February- Made over 7 rooms at Hope Alliance a battered women and children’s shelter in Round Rock.

  • March- Extreme Make over on a family in Buda!

  • April- 56 summer bags for the orphans at St. Judes Children’s Home in New Braunfels

  • May- Charity Boot Camp- Buda

  • June- Day of Beauty for the girls at the Settlement Home in Austin.

  • July- Room Makeover at the Texas Baptist Childrens Home.

  • August- Raised 7,000 pieces of School Supplies for Perez Elementary School- Austin

  • September- (is our only international month of the year) we teamed up with Help End Local Poverty and Raised $3,000 to help build a home for the orphans in Haiti.

  • October- Threw a HUGE fall festival party for the girls at the Settlement Home in Austin.

  • November- donated a 100 turkeys and made thanksgiving baskets for 100 Military soldiers at the Food Care Center in Killen.

  • December- Threw a Christmas Party for 90 foster children with Texas Mentor and partnered with Restore Austin, Music for the City and HELP to raise awareness on human trafficking.

Austin Angels makes it very easy to volunteer! Once a month (every month) we all come together and serve. It makes no difference to us how you choose to participate. Some of our volunteers give their time because they are limited in funds, some give money, some share our story and some pray for us. We welcome anything and everything that you can do to help our organization grow. To date we have 800 volunteers but we want that number to grow. Our goal is to have everyone in Austin -volunteering once a month- either with or without us!

At the beginning of every month I will send out an email letting all the volunteers know about the mission for the month plus all the details to the service project.

We understand that everyone’s schedule is not the same. Whatever your schedule permits for joining us is 100% fine! We know that not everyone will get to volunteer each month. If it works out that you can join us..Great! If not, we will see you at the next one!

If you would like to become an ANGEL (volunteer) please email me (Susan.Brubaker@austinangels.net) your email address and I will add you to our distribution list. Once you do this, you will start receiving all of our newsletters monthly!

Can’t wait to see you on our next project! Blessings!

Susan
