December Branch Announcements

Central Texas Food Bank Donations

ASCE Austin Branch has proudly supported the Central Texas Food Bank for years now.  Hunger affects people from all walks of life. Working families, retired seniors on fixed incomes, grandparents with custody of grandchildren, the chronically ill and the disabled all turn to the Food Bank for help in emergencies or as part of their regular meal planning.  The Central Texas Food Bank has been at the front line of hunger relief with the help of Partner Agencies in 21 counties across Central Texas. Together, they provided more than 45 million pounds of food to families in need during the 2016-2017 fiscal year, the largest amount distributed since the organization’s establishment in 1982, when only 330,000 pounds of food was provided.  For every $1 donated, the Food Bank can turn that into 12 meals. 

There will be donation boxes on tables for the December luncheon. Be on the lookout for donation boxes at each table or donate using your credit card at the registration table. ASCE Austin will be matching donations to this organization.
