Starting off our list is considerably one of the biggest charitable series of events in Austin, and coincidentally has some of our favorite Thanksgiving events near Dripping Springs! Operation Turkey Austin has several events within the one-week period. All events are meant to benefit the homeless and underserved people of the Austin area. While their Chipotle “Cause An Effect” Fundraiser has already passed, there are still more opportunities to get involved!
If you want to get involved, start off by going to the first Volunteer Orientation on Thursday, November 16 at Shiner’s Saloon from 6:00 – 7:00 PM. If you can’t make it then, you can go to the second Volunteer Orientation Sunday, November 19 at Austin City Hall from 2:00 – 3:00 PM. Once oriented, you’ll be able to participate in the various events like the Turkey Tailgate and give back to the Austin community.
