Christmas Families Book, Bake, Craft Sale and Tweetup

The Texas State Library and Archives Commission will host its annual fundraiser for local families in need during the Christmas season Wednesday, December 11, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Books, baked goods, and crafts made and donated to the sale by TSLAC staff will be sold at the Lorenzo de Zavala State Archives and Library Building, across the east entrance to the State Capitol, 1201 Brazos Street, Austin. The event is free to attend, but sale prices will vary. TSLAC will donate proceeds to three needy families via Foundation Communities in Austin. Agency staff will also perform Christmas music during the sale. In an effort to spread the word about the sale on Twitter, the agency will host a Tweetup in conjunction with the sale. Hashtag is #ChristmasFamilies. Those unable to attend are still encouraged to use this hashtag on or before December 11 to help us promote the sale. The three families we are raising funds for would be grateful for your support. Out of respect for their privacy, we are withholding their names but sharing with you some important details on our website: http://bit.ly/xmasfam13
