Feeding Austin's Hungry And Making A Difference Through Woodlawn's Pound Challenge!

What Is It?

During the month of January, the Woodlawn family is working with the Baptist Community Center to provide food for Austin's hungry. The Baptist Community Center provides the Texas Baptist Children's Home in Round Rock one tenth of what the Woodlawn family collects. Each year, the Woodlawn family works together in The Pound Challenge to collect more canned goods and related food items than the year before!

Beginning Sunday morning, January 14, you can "weigh in" your food donations at the Pound Challenge weigh stations. The final opportunity to weigh in is Sunday morning, January 28, with the results being announced following the 11AM worship service. After the big announcement, a crew of volunteers will transport our collection to the Baptist Community Center and stock the shelves!
