Foundation Communities Holiday Drive

Foundation Communities is an amazing organization that provides affordable housing to low-income Austinites and offers a wide array of services to address poverty’s causes as well as its effects. For several years, WPC has made welcome baskets for new residents of their M Station apartment complex. Now we have the opportunity to get involved with their holiday drive by purchasing gifts for families!
