Donation Drive for the Big Bend – July 16, 2016



Clean Out your Closet for Big Bend

Would you like to do some summer cleaning? We will put your stuff to good use!
Savers Thrift on Burnet Rd in Austin, one of our business supporters, has offered to pay by the pound for donated items so we’re going to have a little party!

July 16, 2016


1200 Windsor Rd., Austin 78703

The location is a big pink and blue Victorian looking house with a large yard. Drop your items in the truck out front, then join us for conversation and refreshments (read: cold wine, beer, gin cocktails and non-alcoholic bevvies) on the lawn. Information on the Trans Pecos Pipeline and the BBCA, as well as fun merchandise, will be available on site.
It is also a going-away party for Austin event and volunteer coordinator, Margaret Shugart, as she prepares to start at Vermont Law School for environmental law. And we will be introducing Jennifer Conway, who will be stepping in to help from here forward!
RSVP via Facebook HERE

Every pound of soft items is worth 20 cents and each pound of hard items is worth 5 cents. Our goal is to gather at least 1000 pounds!
