What do you do when you have family and friends coming over? You give them a Warm Welcome!
The National Black MBA Association Austin Chapter, in partnership with the Greater Austin Black Chamber of Commerce, and Soulciti, asks you to come out, bring friends, and most of all, bring donations as we host Operation Warm Welcome. Our recently evacuated guests could really use our help, and it is on us to show them that all is not lost. We welcome them to our city and would love to help. Please bring your donations to the Greater Austin Black Chamber of Commerce Offices (912 E 11th St Suite A, Austin, TX 78702) on Saturday, September 2, 2017 from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM.
