After a weekend of food, fellowship and giving thanks with our families and friends, today is Giving Tuesday – a day dedicated to supporting our communities through charitable giving.
Giving back to the local community has been part of the fabric of American Constructors since our founding in 1982. Today, we’ve selected 10 Central Texas organizations to donate to that are working towards build a better community for children, families and individuals through education, support and access to healthier lifestyles.
Learn more about the organizations we are helping support below, and then join us in lending our neighbors a hand by visiting Amplify Austin – an online resource that makes it easy to learn about and donate to more than 700 Central Texas nonprofits all year long.
