What. A. Day! We absolutely love Project Graduation and are thrilled to give out 80 “Life Kits” to graduates aging out of the foster care system. Items in these kits will help kick start a new apartment or dorm room and provide a little help on a new journey. A special thank you to our volunteers, staff and sponsors who made all of this possible!

Meet Sharon Torrico in our latest edition of Member Monday! To learn more about volunteering at the Assistance League of Austin visit https://www.assistanceleague.org/austin/volunteer/

“My name is Sharon Torrico. I retired from a career in healthcare administration in 2017. It was important to me to find a volunteer opportunity that had a meaningful purpose and one that would keep me busy. I started researching non-profit organizations that did not pay their volunteers and an organization that would allow me some flexibility. A friend suggested that I look into Assistance League of Austin (ALA).

What interested me in ALA was the various programs that I could participate in and how each program helped to better the community and city that I love! I quickly signed on with ALA and have been volunteering with them since 2017.

During this time, I have been involved with several programs such as Operation School Bell which provides new school clothes to kids, Teenage Outfitters Program which provides clothing for teenage students, the Scholarship Program which provides scholarships to attend Austin Community College, and the Outreach Program which provides assistance to families in need within our community. I have also enjoyed working in ALA’s Thrift Shop, serving on the Board, and assisting with grant-writing. One of my favorite activities is to help families transition from homelessness to home by way of working with the Outreach Program where we partner with other organizations and shelters to provide basic goods such as beds and household goods. When an empty apartment can be transformed into a home for a family and living independently can be maintained, that is a worthwhile cause!“
