This month marks our first visit to HHH, TX HDFS' most consistent partner in volunteer opportunities around the Austin area.
HHH serves children who are healing from physical, emotional, and sexual abuse, neglect, or abandonment. TX HDFS facilitates special activities for the children, such as field days and arts and crafts, to help them develop secure and healthy adult-child relationships.
For October, we'll be engaging the children in Halloween-themed projects like paper plate pumpkins and spiders for decoration! For more information on how you can team up with TX HDFS to serve the children of Helping Hand Home, contact our service chair Sarah Zimmerman at firstname.lastname@example.org
As a part of the School of Human Ecology within the College of Natural Sciences, we have the opportunity to represent our organization at UT's Natural Sciences Week 2017.
We'll be tabling at UT's Main Mall from 6-8PM so come out to see us and the other student organizations in CNS (there's free food and t-shirts if you need a greater incentive)!
Thank you to everyone who came out to our first general meeting! It was an honor having Dr. Russell and Randy Barrera speak on what HDFS means to them and give us insight on the direction that the School of Human Ecology is heading toward in the near future.
The second general meeting will introduce members to our most consistent partner in community service around the Austin area, Helping Hand Home. We'll be going over our organization's role in the grand scheme of HHH as well as prepping for our first visit this month!
