Who are Allies?

Hi, I’m Kassie, and my family and I volunteer with Austin Allies, a charity organization. I’m a Girl Scout Brownie that does fun activities such as helping the Humane Society (Austin) and improving the environment. Austin Allies also helps the community in similar ways. They put together projects to deliver supplies to schools and donate to charity. The kids can help in activities, too! I’ve helped the group with projects for Carrying Hope, BookSpring and others. I‘ve had fun volunteering with Allies.


Who are their Leaders?

The Board of Allies is a group of leaders who help guide the Allies. My mom is included. They set examples to follow. Basically, they are the superheroes.


How can I learn more?

Austin Allies is a great organization that supports the quote: Keep Austin Weird. And also, love Austin! If you have any questions, keep looking on austinallies.org, and hopefully your questions will be answered. You can also ask me about volunteering with the team!

                                                           

Kassie and her family have volunteered with Austin Allies from the very beginning, and her mom (and SuperHero) Margaret, is an Allies Board Member.
