I have just spoken to Parker Lane United Methodist Church which is one of the shelters for Onion Creek Neighborhoods.
They are in desperate need of clothes, food, and toiletries (shampoo, toothpaste,soap,etc). They did not mention it, but I am assuming formula and diapers are probably also needed as well.
You can send or deliver donations to:
Parker Lane United Methodist Church
2105 Parker Lane Austin, TX 78741
If you want to donate, I would suggest sending either cash, or gift cards to local grocery stores like HEB or Visa Check cards. Gift cards give the church and volunteers an easy way to immediately help families who have lost everything.
Thank you for helping out these neighborhoods!
