Best Sweet Faces in the Face of Disaster: Bastrop Volunteer Reception Center

What sweet relief to encounter a dozen or so earnest and organized, fresh-faced AmeriCorps volunteers at the ready at this intake/outtake volunteer center. The crew is made up of members from E-Corps pods from Washington state and Austin's own American YouthWorks. Bastropians in need of immediate assistance (provisions, tools, lot-clearing, etc.) may come here to learn of resources available to them as well as to sign up for free relief. Do-gooders wishing to make a difference may come here to learn of opportunities to lend a hand as well as be matched to best reflect their skill sets. Your volunteer hours offset the amount of money the already beleaguered Bastrop County has to contribute to this crisis. So go to it, and join up with these sweet kids fighting the good fight.
