HACA Gives Back

The Girl Scouts of Central Texas HACA program is named for its partnership with the Housing Authority of the City of Austin. The program provides service to girls from low income and low resource backgrounds in order to help them reach their full potential. Girl Scouts of Central Texas’ vision is to deliver programs that focus on leadership development, while also offering provable outcomes that benefit girls, their families and their communities.

Last week, the seven participating HACA troops created sweet treats and holiday cards to donate to the Volunteer Health Clinic (VHC), a nonprofit clinic that focuses on providing medical access to low income and uninsured residents of Travis County. The Volunteer Health Clinic goes above and beyond to deliver the community with high quality health care and prevention education. Just like the Girl Scouts, VHC depends highly on their volunteers as they are the heart of the clinic.

The troops enjoyed being able to make and share Christmas popcorn mix, reindeer candy canes, and Christmas cards all filled with Girl Scout love.
