How to Help People In Need During Austin’s Winter Weather Crisis

Studio 512

If you haven’t heard already, Austin Water has started to lift its boil water notice.
It has done so for downtown Austin, and significant portions of central, east, and southeast Austin
.

Although many people still do not have water. If you need clean water, listen up! Austin Oaks Church in Southwest Austin is having a drive-thru water distribution at 5 pm today. It’s pure drinking water that does not need to be boiled. All you have to do is bring your own container, 5 gallons per household.

Free water available at 10 Austin sites Monday for residents who can’t purchase or boil water | KXAN Austin

And Austin ISD is providing free curbside meals for children and their caregivers today until 1:30 pm and Thursday from 10:30 am until 1:30 pm. Learn more here!

Speaking of giveaways, yesterday, Deep Roots Austin hair salon was giving free hair washes to those in need. Now, they are hosting a raffle and all proceeds will be donated to @AustinMutualAid.

Here’s how is how the raffle for relief works:

  • Venmo $5 dollars to @deeprootsatx for one entry (no limit on entries)

  • They will draw one winner on Friday, February 26, 2021.
  • The winner will receive a $200 gift card to Deep Roots and a bottle of Shampoo and Conditioner
