We here at Twelve Rivers greatly value the act of giving back to the community and helping those in need. With Thanksgiving in the near future we would like to give you and your neighbors the opportunity to help families in need. Hunger is a towering problem and with the support of all our communities, this November we will help put an end to hunger in the greater Austin area.
