March AYLA Community Service Project –
Austin Mutual Aid

While many of us have recovered from the power outages, hundreds of families are still struggling and in need of help. This month the Austin Young Lawyers Association Community Service Days Committee is supporting Austin Mutual Aid (AMA) through the donation of food and household items to those heavily impacted by Winter Storm Uri. Please join us in helping those in need by purchasing an item from AMA’s Amazon wish list at the following link: Items will be shipped directly to the Long Center where AMA is currently housed and distributing donations to fellow Austinites. AMA is also requesting perishable and non-perishable food items, which can be purchased at and shipped directly to: Austin Mutual Aid c/o Iffy Roma, 701 W Riverside Drive, Austin, Texas 78704. Food items needed include: fruits and vegetables, milk, eggs, sandwich meat, pasta, pasta sauce, rice, beans, peanut butter, jam, snacks, nuts, tortillas, bread, baby food, and baby formula. AMA will be housed at the Long Center until March 12, please make sure all donations will be delivered prior to that date!
