Food pantry at reagan high school
Too many children in our community struggle each day not having enough food to eat. Many schools offer breakfast and lunch options but often time the dinner table is scarce or empty.
Muslim Space has set a goal of providing 25 meals a month to help maintain and stock the food pantry at Reagan High School, an AISD Title 1 school. Each meal feeds a family of 4 and costs around $9.
micah 6 Street meal service
Each Sunday, University Baptist Church hosts the Micah 6 Street Youth Drop-in Center. The center includes a place of fellowship (out of the weather), a healthy meal, a computer lab and special educational and self-care programs. Muslim Space is committed to providing the meal service once a calendar quater. Each meal service will feed about 30 and is estimated to cost $150. You can make a recurring or one time donation to help support this much needed service.

little free libraries
Two-thirds of low-income families have no children's books at all in their homes. These kids often don't have access to any reading material once school is out for the summer, causing a cumulative, significant reading achievement gap that compromises students' learning potential and ability to succeed. And it robs them of the joy of reading!
One way to help remedy this disparity is to provide kids with easy access to books year-round. This where Little Free Libraries come in. These little wooden boxes on stands serve as neighborhood book exchanges, where kids can borrow and return books at any time.
Muslim Space is committed to building, installing and supplying books for 4 Little Free Libraries in underserved areas of Austin. Your contribution will help in maintaining an inventory of books in each of these Little Libraries.
back to school supply drive
Let's get the school year off right! Muslim Space has partnered with MCSS to provide back to school supplies to refugee and low-income students in our community. Your support will help provide a new and fully stocked backpack to these kids, many of whom are still adjusting to their new environment.
The cost of each bag is $45 and any contribution is helpful.
