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:

Sponsor a Foundation Communities family for the holidays. Thanks to the generous support of our community we have successfully matched all of our families with children with sponsors and provided support for all households requesting assistance. Sponsor registration is now closed. Thank you!

Donate to our Holiday Drive. Another fun and meaningful activity that provides supplemental items for families needing additional assistance and gift items for our supportive housing residents. Please purchase new gift items. Deliveries accepted by appointment December 12 – 14 from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. at the Community Financial Center, 2600 W. Stassney Austin, TX 78745.
