Acan families and youth can help aisd kids by donating or volunteering with ACPTA (Austin Council of PTAs)
奥斯汀华盟与ACPTA（PTA奥斯汀理事会）合作，支持他们的Austin Fun + Learning计划。我们鼓励我们的社区积极参加这个活动，支持AISD学区内underprivileged kids, 为我们的社区做出有意义的贡献。关于ACPTA，可以访问他们的网站：https://austincouncilpta.org/
这是一个秋季学期很好的义工服务项目，所以 我们特别鼓励青少年参加。他们可以把家里旧的、不用的books and/or new school supplies, games, puzzles or other learning activity kits 收拾起来，他们可以跟家长一起去donation site收集捐献的物资，整理，最后送到目的地。

About this Event
ACAN is excited to partner with ACPTA, providing age appropriate books, games, puzzles, art and activity kits, and other learning supplies to AISD’s underprivileged kids remaining at home due to the pandemic.
There are two main ways that you can contribute. We particularly encourage our youth to participate in this effort. They can help sort out the old items they no longer need at home, take them to the donation site, or collect and deliver the donated items to the designated locations.
If you have gently used or new books and/or new school supplies, games, puzzles or other learning activity kits you’d like to donate, you can drop them off at any of our convenient Austin donation site locations listed below.
