Donation Drive - Caritas of Austin

This year, the AE Institute is partnering with a local organization - Caritas of Austin - whose mission is to prevent and end homelessness in the Austin area. With a variety of initiatives meant to help and inspire those in need, their vision is to make homelessness rare, brief, and nonrecurrent in the Central Texas area.

The AE Institute Advisory Board is asking attendees to contribute items from an Amazon Wish List. The items will then collected and inventoried by NAR and brought to 2019 AE Institute in Austin.

Amazon Wish List Tips:

  • The list is updated as our inventory is met so feel free to stock up on remaining items - some shipping costs may apply.
  • When checking out, select “Courtney Wilson Registry / Wish List address” as your delivery address
  • Please be sure to order your wish list items by Friday, March 1st!

On-site in Austin, attendees will compile these items into first aid kits and rice and bean bags (with cooking instructions included) to be handed out to those that Caritas of Austin serves.
