ACPTA has a new way to support local students by supporting local businesses. It’s called Austin Fun + Learning, and it’s a win for students, a win for some of our favorite local businesses and a win for Austin’s future!

How does it work?

Step 1: You support favorite local stores by choosing items to buy and donate. Stores give you a discount of 10-15%. (Click here for a list of stores and discount codes.)

Step 2: Volunteers pick your donations up from participating stores and deliver them to students at Austin ISD food distribution sites.

Step 3: Students enjoy new opportunities for fun + learning, at a time when every kid needs that more than ever!

Thank you for supporting this project! And thank you to the local businesses and not for profits who are collaborating with us! Our not for profit collaborators include Austin Voices for Education & Youth, Austin Partners in Education and Marathon Kids.
