Giving Back at the Holidays
ABOUT MERRY MEMORIES IN DOVE SPRINGS
We are so excited to commemorate the Silver Anniversary of this year's Merry Memories event. To celebrate the occasion,
River City Youth Foundation will hold an evening production combining its signature Toy Giveaway with a special Christmas Posada.
River City Youth Foundation's annual toy giveaway is one of the most anticipated events each year for children and parents living in the low-income community of southeast Austin's Dove Springs.
Each holiday year, 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 25 years.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Merry Memories has grown to become Austin’s second largest one-day toy and bike giveaway event serving
more than 2,000 children.
We need many volunteers and donations to
create this magical day!
Please consider a contribution this year :)
