Abiding Love Lutheran Food Pantry
Each month on the 1st Sunday, we collect non-perishable food which we deliver directly to the Food Pantry at Abiding Love Lutheran Church in Southwest Austin. We will keep you up to date on most needed items, currently rice, cereal, tuna, and Mac/cheese. Abiding Love does not distribute paper goods - only food. Donation locations are in the lobby.
South Austin - Drive a Senior
Drive a Senior connects Austin area volunteer drivers with seniors who live nearby and who choose to continue living independently. They expect 3,000 more of our fellow citizens to need our services in the coming year. And even more in years to come. So whether you’re feeling charitable or “paying it forward” … or just have a gap on Thursdays between carpool and soccer practice, they would appreciate your help.
South Austin Assistance Ministry (SAAM)
SAAM is a partnership between churches in south Austin and the Travis County Health and Human Services (TCHHS) department giving aid to those who need help with rent, utilities, prescriptions, or clothing. Bethany is a full partner in this task of assisting the needy of south Austin. Clean, used clothing is a major contribution of these churches to those less fortunate.
Pregnancy Resource Center (SAPRC)
The SAPRC offers free support services for families in the Austin area who are expecting a new addition to their family and needing assistance. Support services include abortion counseling, pregnancy tests, referrals to adoption agencies, as well as referrals to community services (medical assistance, job training, etc).
Besides sharing the gospel with every one of their clients, a large part of their ministry is providing new moms with supplies for their babies. Our church supports the center by collecting gently used or new baby gear (diapers, clothes, blankets, pack n'plays, toys, etc.) and donating them to the center. We also hold our annual baby bottle fundraiser to financially help support SAPRC.
Water to Thrive
Water to Thrive is a faith-based non-profit dedicated to the mission of bringing clean, safe water to those who need it in rural Africa. Bethany has worked with and supported the construction of four wells with water to thrive.
