Giving Back at the Holidays


It's that time of the year once again when we bring
the magic of Merry Memories to the community of
southeast Austin's Dove Springs. 
Join us for an evening production featuring the much anticipated Toy Giveaway and a special Christmas

River City Youth Foundation's annual toy giveaway is one of the most beloved events each year for children and
parents living in Dove Springs.

Each holiday, thousands of children feel the love of
hundreds of hearts and souls who come together to
create beautiful holiday moments they will
NEVER forget.

See some of the highlights below of the cherished 

Merry Memories events over the last 26 years.



Merry Memories has grown to become Austin’s

event serving more than 2,000 children.


We need many volunteers and donations to

create this magical day!
