Recursos para el este de Austin durante COVID19

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Neighbor 2 Neighbor (N2N) shares reliable information, food, resources, and caring community with Austin’s low income seniors and families. Neighbors’ average household income is about $1000 per month.

N2N meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday morning of each month, at St. James’ Episcopal Church, 1941 Webberville Road, Austin, TX. Doors open at 9:30 AM, and the lottery for HEB gift cards and bus passes begins at 11:00 AM. Neighbors must arrive prior to 11 AM in order to be eligible for the lottery. 

At each N2N program meeting, neighbors can find:

  • A food pantry that provides a bag of groceries, plus meat and eggs when available. We are a proud partner with the Central Texas Food Bank.
  • Diapers, adult and child-sized, to help families stretch limited budgets, while maintaining dignity and active lifestyles.  We are a proud partner with the Austin Diaper Bank to receive diapers/adult incontinence supplies/period products/wipes for the families we serve.
  • Household items such as toilet paper, shampoo, and other necessities.
  • HEB gift cards with a value of $15, distributed via a lottery system. Arrive before 11 AM to participate in this drawing.
