Project Holiday Help

Make a difference in someone’s life this holiday season.

Project Holiday Help is designed to connect LifeWorks youth and young families with community sponsors to ensure everyone participating has a meaningful holiday experience.

How You Can Help

Backpack/Sleeping Bag Drive

LifeWorks Street Outreach program works with homeless youth living on the streets of Austin. During the holidays, we provide them with backpacks, sleeping bags, blankets, clothing, and other supplies to keep them safe and warm. Organizing a backpack/sleeping bag drive is a great group project for a community group or organization.

Holiday Gift Card Drive

Gift cards are an easy way to give back this holiday season. Just $25 or $50 from a store like HEB, Target or Wal-Mart will provide a youth much needed food and clothing. If you are planning a holiday party, ask your guests to bring gift cards or to make a donation to LifeWorks instead of bringing gifts. Every little bit helps those in need!
