TSLAC Raises Funds for Local Families in Need During Christmas 12.11.13

Every year TSLAC raises funds for local families in need during the Christmas season. Books, baked goods, and crafts donated to the sale by TSLAC staff are sold in the lobby of the agency's Lorenzo de Zavala Building across the east entrance to the Texas State Capitol in Austin. Proceeds are then donated to needy families via a local charity.

 

This year agency staff performed Christmas music during the sale (watch a 6-second clip of their performance on Vine: vine.co/v/hQLvgOAEBlI). Also this year, in an effort to spread the word about the sale on Twitter, the agency hosted a Tweetup. Tweets using the hashtag #ChristmasFamilies were streamed on our website and displayed on a TV monitor during the sale: www.tsl.state.tx.us/tweetup
