Holiday Assistance Program


Every year we look forward to bringing a little holiday cheer to our residents who will not be able to fulfill their family’s wish list on their own.

Here are four ways you can make a big difference this holiday season:

1. Sponsor a Foundation Communities family for the holidays. It’s a great way to engage your family, colleagues, friends, neighbors, congregation, or civic club in a rewarding group service activity. Sponsor request forms are due Friday, December 2. Visit the Sponsor Registration Page to review our guidelines and complete your sponsor registration form.

2. Donate to our Holiday Drive. Another meaningful activity that provides items for families needing additional assistance and gift items for our supportive housing residents. Please purchase new gift items. Deliveries accepted by appointment Tuesday, December 6 – Thursday, December 9 from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. at the Community Financial Center, 2600 W. Stassney Austin, TX 78745. If interested, please contact or 512-610-4008 to schedule your delivery.
