The Liberal Arts Council, the official student voice of Liberal Arts students at the University of Texas at Austin, has pledged efforts for the Spring 2013 semester to raise money for a local Austin charity. The charity we have chosen is Casa Marianella, an emergency shelter for recent adult immigrants to the United States. Casa provides housing and food for up to 35 immigrants, English classes, and a shelter for women and children escaping violent situations, among others. This charity is very worthy and in need of your support so that the Austin area may provide more support for recent immigrants, helping them access resourses and education. Casa Marianella's website is: http://www.casamarianella.org/
LAC is using the online platform IndieGoGo to raise money to support Casa Marianella. Here is the address: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/fundraiser-for-casa-marianella-in-atx
Any amount of financial donation would be much appreciated. If you are unable to donate through our online platform and would prefer to submit a check, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Casa Marianella also accepts donations of clothing and household items, which can be dropped off at their location: 821 Gunter St. Austin, TX 78702
We sincerely appreciate any support you can provide Casa Marianella with during our fundraiser for their shelter!
