LEAP’s “Back to School” Donation Drive and Happy Hour

Wednesday, August 5th, 6 – 8 pm
Malverde, 400 West 2nd St
LEAP invites you to sip sangrias and learn more about LifeWorks Teen Parent Services Program (TPS) while helping less fortunate teenagers get excited about the upcoming school year! In support of TPS, LEAPers are asking all happy hour attendees to bring a donation from the list below (cash and gift cards are also welcome).

Parent Needs:
— Adult-sized backpacks
— High School supplies (binders, paper, dividers, pens, pencils)
— Socks

Children Needs:
— Diaper Bags
— Umbrella Strollers
— Formula (Similac Advanced brand)
— Diapers (sizes 1-5)
— Onesies
— Nursey Kits

Texas has the highest teen birth rate in the country. Each year, more than 1400 Travis County teens give birth. Without support, 23% of these young mothers will give birth again within a year, and 33% will drop out of school. The goal of the LifeWorks TPS is to help young people complete their high school education, prevent subsequent pregnancies, and attain self-sufficiency. We hope you’ll join us at Malverde to support LifeWorks and TPS.

Free Sangria served from 6-7 pm  |  Light fare from La Condessa also available  |  For more information on the donation drive, please visit LEAP’s new website
