Austin Voices for Education

July spotlight: AVEY

Austin Voices for Education and Youth (AVEY) is our spotlight ministry for July. AVEY works to build community in East Austin’s St. John neighborhood by creating community collaboration to strengthen families, support kids and improve schools. The organization believes our public schools can serve as powerful hubs for bringing neighborhoods, families and students together to achieve positive change.
Throughout the month, we will show different ways you can get involved with AVEY. Below are specific volunteer opportunities 

Donate Laundry Supplies

On Wednesday, July 22, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Covenant will have bins set up outside Covenant Hall for no-contact drop off for the following requested items from AVEY: 

  • Detergent (liquid or powder)
  • Softener
  • Fabric Softener sheets
  • Laundry Bags
  • Laundry Baskets
     

Volunteer 

During the quarantine, AVEY is offering multiple drive-through food pantries for families in need. Volunteers are needed at multiple locations to put pre-packed bags of food in the backseats of cars driving through. AVEY is taking great precautions to keep volunteers safe.

Pray for AVEY

  • That God would continue to provide volunteers and resources for AVEY to support and care for families during COVID. 
  • For AVEY to continue to work closely with the school district as they navigate the fall.
  • That AVEY would be ready to help families as we begin a new school year that looks very different.
  • For health of all AVEY staff and volunteers
  • For health of all families AVEY is serving
     

Throughout the month, we will show different ways that AVEY connects neighbors with helpful resources and works with them to improve the neighborhood. Stay tuned this month to learn more about AVEY to find out ways to serve. For questions about AVEY please reach out to Socorro Carrasco or Covenant AVEY liaison, Lynn Bell
