New shoes- Check. New haircut – check. New school clothes- Check. New backpack and school supplies- CHECK! As summer is winding down, we are all reminded that school is about to be back in session. For most children this is an exciting time, as this typically signifies that ‘newness’ is sure to ensue, but that isn’t the case for all.

Which is why we, at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, have partnered with the Austin Apartment Association to do our part to make sure that children in our local communities have tools necessary for their education. With the help of apartment community locations around the greater Austin area, acting as donation sites, we are happy to report that we helped raise over 3,289 school supply items and $550 dollars for kids in need. This years donations went to Austin ISD, Leander ISD, Hays ISD, Pflugerville ISD, and Round Rock ISD.

On August 1st, we delivered the remaining amount of the school supplies that the Austin Apartment Association raised to Austin ISD, which will be hosting their #AISDBash this Saturday at the Palmer Events Center. During the event students and their families will learn about services the school district provides along with safety and educational best practices to get everyone ready for the new school year. Kids in attendance will be able to get FREE backpacks with school supplies inside!

In order to increase community involvement members of the Outreach Committee for the Austin Apartment Association held a box decorating contest with the boxes we donated.
