A note about covid requirements: Masks are required. Individuals are required to wear a mask in all City of Austin facilities. This policy applies to employees as well as visitors to our facilities. Also, as of 10/25/21 we are also testing for covid using a nasal swab that is inserted into each nostril about 1/2 inch deep. We may discontinue the nasal test if covid continues to reduce in severity. For the most up-to-date employee information on the City of Austin's covid response, please visit cityspace.austintexas.gov/Emergency-Information or send questions/concerns to COAEPQ@austintexas.gov.

Beginning mid-November our Adopt a Family program begins, and we will have families needing assistance listed on our website; groups and individuals can adopt a family or several families. You can select a family on line and then serve the family for Christmas. We ask that you provide a means for a Christmas meal for the household and a gift for each child 14 and under. There is some flexibility with this program, you can choose to either make contact with the family and shop based on their needs and make the delivery to their home. If you do not want to have any contact with a family you could also choose to provide gift cards and mail them. For more information on on volunteering to adopt a family, please go to https://www.bluesanta.org/adopt-a-family
If you do not wish to adopt a family, please consider making a financial donation. Here is the link: https://www.bluesanta.org/contribution.
When registering, you must agree to our waiver and obligations. If you would like to read and/or share in advance, please download this copy.
