Doc & Gayle Young Food Drive Donation
DOC AND GAYLE YOUNG FOOD DRIVE
34 YEARS STRONG
The Austin Apartment Association’s annual Doc & Gayle Young Food Drive is a volunteer-driven fundraiser. Fundraising begins mid-August and ends mid-November. Since the beginning of the Doc & Gayle Young Food Drive in 1986, the funds raised have been used to purchase Thanksgiving food packs for Central Texans in our 11-county jurisdiction. Our 100+ AAA member volunteers would hand deliver these food packets to the Austin Housing Authority, the Texas Department of Protective and Regulatory Services Rainbow Room, SAFE Austin and Foundation Communities on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving.
This year, due to COVID-19, we are donating all funds raised to our four partner organizations (listed above) as well as the Central Texas Food bank.
While 2020 may look a little different, we still need your support... now, more than ever! Please donate online or volunteer to help with our fundraising efforts. 100% of collected funds go toward feeding needy families and individuals in Austin and surrounding areas.
