Austin Children's Services
 
 

Thank you so much for thinking of the youth and young adults in our care!  In-kind gifts of needed items help to lower costs.  Please visit this page often as the Wish List is updated seasonally 

We are growing by leaps and bounds, and unfortunately we do not have the storage space we once had.  Because of this, we ask that you please only donate items listed below  or in the PDF as they will serve an immediate need.

Donations are accepted at Building A during office hours only (Mon – Fri, 8:30 am – 4:30 pm).  ACS is located at 4800 Manor Rd, Austin, TX 78723.

Easy Giving!

ACS has made it easier to give to our programs by creating an Amazon Wish List!  Click here to purchase items we need and have them shipped directly to us at the address above.
