Today, December 1st through Wednesday, December 21st, Austin Children’s Academy will be accepting donations to support the local Brown Santa initiative. If you have any new toys or books or have a monetary contribution that you would like to donate, please bring them by and drop them off in our donation box.
The Holiday season is a time for celebration, giving, and reflection. Every year, children go through the holidays and don’t receive any of the gifts that characterize this beautiful holiday and that we all look forward to over the course of the rest of the year. Brown Santa aims to provide gifts to children living below the United States poverty line that would otherwise be going without. Any monetary donations collected are put towards buying presents for kids in need to make the holidays a little bit brighter.
We spoke with the county sheriff and asked him if there was any special focus to this year’s donation drive and he said that the greatest need each year is for gifts focused on teenagers. He recommended iTunes and other gift cards, small mp3 players and electronics, and other gifts geared towards older children. If you can, please consider making a donation and changing the holidays for a local child.
Please consider donating and being a part of ACA’s holiday initiative. Every child deserves a happy holiday season no matter their income level, and even small gifts can make a world of difference. Thank you all for another great year of ACA, and Happy Holidays!
