Austin Events

Each year we have multiple events throughout the year that you, friends and family can participate in. This page is dedicated to keeping you up-to-date with what we are doing in your great city. 

Here are the following events you can look forward to seeing come to your neck of the woods:

  • Volunteer Orientations – here you can learn about what to expect on Thanksgiving Day, meet some of the leaders and see how you can help.
  • The Turkey Tailgate – This day is a whole lot of fun. It is a time when volunteers come together, the day before our big day, in preparation for the event. Turkeys are cooked, donations are sorted and a lot of laughs and good times are shared.
