Helping out Mr. Louis Hicks

A true hero, Louis Hicks, has spent a lifetime serving his country, his community, and especially his family.  At 92 years young , Hicks can still be seen daily mowing his neighbors' lawns, or cooking his famous cornbread for passer-byers in his East Austin neighborhood.

A World War II Veteran, Mr. Hicks has consistently put others before himself. Now, we would like to return the favor.

Mr. Hicks was recently featured in a local news story regarding the lack of heating in his small home- http://www.fox7austin.com/news/local-news/austin-police-warm-homes-and-hearts-with-special-deliveries


This story shed light on the fact that Louis could use a hand or two. Whether it's groceries, help around the house, or monetary giving for bills, a little will go a long way for this big-hearted community pillar. While he would never dream of asking for help, we believe serving this wonderful man is the least that can be done as he constantly enriches the lives of everyone else around him.
