Action in Austin

We are a coalition of members from Third Unitarian Church and Unity Temple UU Congregation working to form effective community partnerships in the Austin area, and taking action to make a positive difference. In the past year, we have brought members of both congregations together to work on:

New! Tutoring Program at Kingdom Baptist Church
We collected computer equipment and set-up internet service for a new program with Kingdom Baptist Church. If you are interested in being a teacher or homework helper, serving primary and secondary school students on Saturdays from 12:00-2:00 pm at Kingdom Baptist, a 7-minute drive from Unity Temple, please let us know. Childcare, carpools, and free secure parking are available. Contact Lisa at: ActioninAustin@unitytemple.org

Mayfield Community Garden
We help plant, tend, and harvest a community garden in Austin, and offer garden plots to interested neighbors. Fresh vegetables from the garden are donated to the Fraternité Notre Dame free meal program. If you would like to help with the gardens, contact: ActioninAustin@unitytemple.org

Fraternité Notre Dame free meal program
A few members help provide volunteer support, meals, and fresh vegetables to this free meal program in the Austin area. Volunteers are needed during the day with flexible hours.

Austin Scholarship Fund
We support this scholarship fund through our Sunday Collections program in addition to other fundraisers. Since 1974 the Austin Scholarship Committee has awarded up to 20 scholarships per year to graduating high school seniors in the Austin area.
