IREM Austin and its members, partners and shareholders all live here, work here, play here, and are raising our families here. Every year thousands of people in Austin & Texas go hungry. Now, more than ever, with school closures and folks hurting financially, kids who depended on school meals or other subsidies are going hungry. Central Texas Food Bank (CTFB) has stepped up to address the challenge by providing free summer meals for kids and adapting operations by increasing mass distributions with the Mobile Food Pantry to provide food to those that need it most especially during these difficult times.  

IREM Austin and our Community Outreach Committee wants to help the CTFB ensure families have food today and in the future. We want to help make sure their shelves are stocked and ready to respond when families need it most. With that, we are launching a COVID-19 Relief Fund and have set a goal to raise $6000+ for the CTFB. If every member would donate a minimum of $20, we will reach our goal in no time!

BONUS: We have partnered with the IREM Foundation who will match up to $1000! Contributions are tax deductible through the IREM Foundation and 100% of the funds contributed to the IREM Austin COVID-19 Relief Fund will go directly to the Central Texas Food Bank. DONATE NOW!
