The success of Assistance League of Austin’s philanthropic programs is due entirely to the generosity of individuals, businesses, and foundations.  Without donations of new and gently used merchandise, our THRIFT HOUSE would not exist.  The Austin community has responded generously to our annual Clothes For Kids mail solicitation. Our programs receive additional funding from cash donations, memorials, and grants.

For information on how you can help, please contact our President at 512-458-3716 or email her at
