What could I buy/create for MLF?

Our brothers and sisters living without homes in Austin are always in need of a wide variety of hygiene items. Linked is listing of specific items by brand with their respective prices all from HEB. The total cost of all of the items on the list is less than $30 before taxes. Those $30 dollars will make a world of difference for the individual they go to - good hygiene can be the difference between being offered a job or sent a rejection.

Please consider teaming up to cost-share putting together multiple hygiene packs by reaching out to your Life Group, Women's/Men's Study, or workplace! These items help to change the lives of these brothers and sisters.

Do you accept clothing donations throughout the month?

We are now accepting new socks and underwear anytime through online donations to our Amazon Wish List!

Do you accept food donations?

It depends on what it is and when you have it! Christine Stehno, our Missions Project Coordinator, would love to talk with you if you have food to donate at any time. Reach out via email and indicate in the subject line if you're in a time restraint and need a response quickly.
