Each year we have a holiday social, and each year we team up with a charity to give back. We are happy to say that we will be teaming up with LifeWorks Austin again this year!
HEAT will be sponsoring two families, giving them a Christmas to remember.
Meet Oscar G. Oscar is 13 years old and has nine members in his family including himself.
“My mother does not have enough income to provide clothes for everyone. She is a single mother and although her older children try to help, she sometimes struggles. Your generosity will provide my family with an opportunity to have a merry Christmas and to see the little ones happy. Thanks for helping us.”
We'd also like to introduce you to Krystal D. Krystal is 11 years old and has seven people in her family including herself.
“We do not have money to afford gifts for Christmas. We came to Lifeworks for counseling to gain emotional stability and to be able to survive and overcome things in a better way. We came to try to understand each other and better communicate. We are a family that is in much need and we would be happy and grateful for whatever gifts we receive. Thank you for providing us with a very special Christmas.”
Oscar and Krystal's families have given us a list of things that they would like to have this year, and we have put it in a registry online. Gifts can be purchased online, from stores, or gently used items. Once you have decided to get an item for one of the families, please mark the item as purchased on the registry so we don't have repeat gifts. Wrapped and labeled gifts can be turned in at the HEAT studio, or at the HEAT holiday party.
For delivery info on the bigger items, email Sarah directly. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
We will also be having a silent auction at the party from 7:00-9:30pm. All of the proceeds will be benefitting LifeWorks Austin's Project Holiday Help.
