If you are looking to give back this holiday season, Austin Community College District (ACC) offers several opportunities to help the Riverbat community.

Giving Tuesday 2021 | November 30

The ACC Foundation is once again participating in the annual #GivingTuesday global day of giving to help raise money for student scholarships and the Student Emergency Fund. Last year, the Foundation raised more than $8,000 in 24 hours. This year’s goal is to raise $10,000 on November 30. Donations may be made via the Give Now link on the ACC Foundation web page.

Brown Santa/Blue Santa | Ends December 10

ACC’s Student Government Association (SGA) and Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society have organized a Brown Santa/Blue Santa toy drive. The focus of this year’s drive is games and puzzles for children, from infants to age 17. Unwrapped games and puzzles may be dropped off at any donation box located outside campus police stations at Highland, Riverside, Round Rock, and Hays campuses. There also will be boxes at the Highland Business Center and the Service Center. The deadline for donations is December 10. If you have questions or need assistance dropping off a large donation, contact SGA Advisor Mohammed Elghoul at [email protected].

Employee Emergency Fund | Ongoing

Consider helping your fellow Riverbat employees who are going through an unexpected hardship by donating a portion of your paycheck to either the Employee Emergency Grant or Loan Fund.
