Food Drive 2021 - our 35th Year!
Hand-in-hand with the Community Outreach Committee, the Austin Apartment Association’s annual Doc & Gayle Young Food Drive (held during the fall) is a 35-year legacy of a volunteer-driven fundraiser to purchase Thanksgiving foodstuffs for Central Texans. The “Crew” helps plan the various fundraisers, cultivates donors, and organizes volunteers and logistics for the annual delivery day the Tuesday before Thanksgiving.
Who can join? All members! Both Outreach and the Food Drive Crew are some of the most FUN and energetic committees! Both are open to suppliers, owners, and management company members.
How to join? Jump right in and join us at a meeting, or contact the Committee Chair(s) or Staff Liaison to obtain the meeting schedule or more details. Join anytime throughout the year.
