Austin Subaru Supports Food for Thought 2021! - Emily C

In November of 2021, Austin Subaru was proud to support the 25th annual Food for Thought event with a $15,000 sponsorship! The Food for Thought event benefits Communities in Schools of Central Texas, an organization that helps students and their families navigate through the maze of public and private schools. Through a school-based Program Manager, they bring community resources into schools to empower success for all students by removing barriers for students at risk of dropping out, keeping kids in schools and on the path to graduation, building relationships, and providing local resources to drive results. During the Food for Thought event, Austin's most celebrated chefs and restaurants contribute their time and talent to help Central Texas children by crafting and serving gourmet bites at the tasting benefit. Also featured was live music at the Moody Theater and an exciting live auction! This was an incredible night to celebrate the success of Communities in Schools students and raise funds for critical dropout prevention services. Austin Subaru was grateful to have been given the opportunity to support this amazing event!

The Austin Empty Bowl Project Event! - Haley B

Austin Empty Bowl Project benefits the Central Texas Food Bank and was the first of its kind in Texas! Central Texas Food Bank is an incredible organization that works with food donors, financial supporters, and volunteers to fill unmet needs in Central Texas. Austin Empty Bowl Project is a glorious event that brings together potters, musicians, and local restaurant owners who donate their time and talents to help nourish hungry children in Central Texas. This 2-week-long event was held virtually this year due to Covid-19, but that did not keep anyone from having a great time while supporting an awesome cause! This is always held the Sunday before Thanksgiving, and it donates all proceeds to Kids Cafe, a program of the Central Texas Food Bank, and Meals for Kids, a program of Meals on Wheels Central Texas! Austin Subaru is passionate about giving back to organizations like this, so they wanted to find a way to show their support. As a result, they did a $2,000 sponsorship!

Walk out of the Darkness with Austin Subaru - Haley B

Right now, suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. It was responsible for more than 47,500 deaths in 2019, which is about one death every 11 minutes. These are just a couple of the many devastating facts about suicide, and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is working diligently to bring these numbers down significantly. The Out of the Darkness Community Walk is a special event that provides community, connection, healing, and hope for survivors of suicide loss and those with lived experience. The fundraising efforts spark the conversations that inform our communities of the importance of suicide prevention while creating the resources necessary for AFSP's research, education, advocacy, and support programs. Austin Subaru noticed the incredible services being done by AFSP, so they were eager to contribute to the Out of the Darkness Community Walk. They were more than happy to donate $5,000 to this amazing cause!
