January 14 – Monthly Meeting. Saint John’s UMC
6:30pm social gathering, 7:00 meeting
Continuing our focus on poverty, our speaker will be Richard Troxel, who works with ARCH and House the Homeless here in Austin. He will describe a “Let’s Get Back-to-Work” program that will support homeless families of the working poor while taking job certification courses which would enable them to significantly increase their income. How can we help?
January 18 – MLK Day March
This march traditionally begins at the MLK statue on the UT campus, moves to the Capitol for a program and music, then to Huston-Tillotson. We’ll be there with our banner!
February 11 – Monthly Meeting.
We are planning a panel presentation to follow up on the recent Hunger Summit in Waco. Texas ranks 49th in food security for children (only Mississippi ranks lower). There is money available to provide nutritious meals for school-age children during the summer months, if only there were delivery systems in place. How can we help?
