Thank you, all, for considering helping us help the less fortunate in our community. If you travel along the highways around Austin you have likely seen the communities of people along exits and under bridges. While there are resources available to them, these often may not be enough. For the past 10 years I have kept backpacks in my car with various supplies (warm clothing, waterproof jackets, pants, and socks, baby powder, feminine products, wet wipes, toothbrushes and toothpaste, etc...). For over 10 years, Ana and her family in Panama have also donated supplies primarily to vulnerable children from Panama’s rural areas.
This year, Ana and I decided we would forgo exchanging gifts this holiday season and put the money towards more supply backpacks for Austin Homeless.

While donating to a shelter or organization is wonderful, We have found it so much more rewarding to be able to hand these items to a person, look them in the eyes and shake their hands, and actually TALK to them and let them know there are people who care. While they are always so appreciative of the supplies, they also appreciate the interaction.

This is a project which is ongoing, year round, so we would love it if you would like to help us purchase the items for our fellow human beings. No cash will be provided to them; only needed items. Thoughts and ideas on what to include in the bags are always welcome.

From our hearts, we thank you,
Peter and Ana
