Operation Wish List program had the pleasure of helping Andrews Elementary "refresh" their teacher's lounge. Part of this Assistant League of Austin philanthropic program is to give school staff an opportunity to "wish" for items not covered in their budget. The Andrews administration, in an effort to create better morale and working conditions, decided to wish for a “spruced up” lounge space for their staff. The COVID-19 pandemic restrictions caused the refresh endeavor to be stalled until recently. What a fun surprise for the teachers and staff at Andrews for the 2021-2022 school year!

Operation Wish List committee would like to thank fellow Assistance League of Austin member, Laurie, for her assistance and expertise in coordinating this project.

And thanks to all our donors and THRIFT HOUSE shoppers for the continued support of all Assistance League of Austin philanthropic programs. Your Austin community thanks you, too!

Our Toy Cart Program returned to Dell Children's Medical Center Tuesday, ending a sixteen month break forced by Covid-19 restrictions. The team of 50 Assistance League of Austin volunteers were anxious to resume patient visits and distribute gifts of toys, crafts and books throughout the hospital. Vaccinated, masked, and with the help of lots of hand gel, Toy Cart volunteers are dedicated to supporting and cheering families in a time of need. Toy Cart items needed to serve these children four days a week are purchased by the Toy Cart team using funds earned at the THRIFT HOUSE. We thank our customers and donors for their continued support of all our programs serving the Austin Community.

Our Story

Assistance League of Austin has one mission: support our local community.

We also offer programs to help out, including Operation School Bell®, Toy Cart, and Bus With Us. And, if you have any household items in good repair that you no longer need, we will happily accept your donations and make sure they’re used to help your fellow Austin neighbors. Together, we can make a difference.
