In 2017, The Austin SeaHawkers focused on a charity very close to home. The Rainbow Room, through Partnerships For Children supports Foster Kids in Austin, TX. Providing much needed basic necessities when CPS has to pull a child from their home.
One of the ways this group of people makes a difference in the lives of the children they support, is by providing them personalized Christmas presents. Each child fills out a wish list of what they would love to get for Christmas. We as a Booster Club, went shopping and bought $3,350 worth of presents to donate. This was only made possible because our amazing booster club and watch party attendees are so generous in their donations to our club!
There is still so much more that we can do for this organization. They don’t just need present donations during the holidays. The Social Workers use this space to grab essentials to take with them to give to extended family members when they find themselves unexpectedly parenting small children. There is a great need for basic items such as:
- Tooth brushes and toothpaste
- Car Seats
- Hygiene products
- And so much more!
