Project Impact Dedicates $50k to Presidential Meadows Elementary

Assistance League of Austin’s Project Impact is dedicating more than $50,000 to Manor ISD Presidential Meadows Elementary School. We have designated Project Impact to support faculty and staff, more than 564 students, and the families of this school. Project Impact combines the resources of three Assistance League of Austin philanthropic programs for two consecutive school years. Operation Wish List program allows faculty and staff to select durable goods for their classroom or school building. Operation School Bell program provides a wardrobe of school clothing to qualifying students. Outreach program provides needed articles to families identified by the school. The commitment to this two-year program can only deepen our relationship with school staff and students.

Our thanks to Dr. Andre Spencer, Manor ISD Superintendent, Ms. Camela Guyton, Principal of Presidential Meadows Elementary, and to all faculty and staff. We look forward to this worthy endeavor.

Giving back with Santa-tize Austin

As the holidays neared, we looked for new ways to give back to our community during COVID-19. We learned that many families don’t have the resources to purchase necessary cleaning supplies. Our project, “Help Santa-tize Austin,” gathered and delivered bags of these essential items for distribution to families in need.

Thank you, Moody Foundation!

Assistance League of Austin is tremendously grateful to the Moody Foundation for its generous $50,000 grant to support our philanthropic programs.
