Since our last blog post regarding the COVID-19 virus, from March 13, 2020, we have seen the #socialdistancing phenomenon emerge, a recommendation to limit gatherings to 50 people and then to 10 people, and now we just have to stay inside. We’ve seen the closure of “non-essential” businesses across the country and already, we are seeing business closures and grocery store droughts happening across Austin. The City of Austin recently prohibited gatherings of over 10 people inside and outside (with the exception of governmental, educational, and medical spaces) and sit-ins at restaurants, bars, cafes, etc. Businesses are limited to providing to-go services only. Because Austin is a major hub for the food and drink industry, especially during the SXSW season, local businesses are suffering more than ever. As Austinites, we want to help as much as possible.

Coffee. Work. Dinner. Sleep. Repeat. Sound familiar? Nowadays it seems as though being an adult also means living a routine life style.

No matter where you are or how you spend your day, there’s nothing quite like coming together as one big community. Although it doesn’t require being president of the HOA or picking up trash along the highway everyday, there are little things that you can do to be an active member of your community. A great way to do this is by giving back to the local nonprofits that strive to make Austin a better place to live every single day. Continue Reading →
