Dear AFAA members and mga kababayans,
Good day Fil-Am community, hope all is well with you and your family, As we all know we are in the state of social distancing and stay-at-home order as announced by City Mayors office until April 13, 2020. To avoid the spread of the virus ncov-19.
To preserve, promote and enhance Filipino culture through education, cultural arts, and to provide community assistance and recreation for those living in Central Texas and the surrounding areas.
AFAA’s program of activities has been halted such the Easter potluck event for no more than 10 in group are allowed for the same reason. Despite the situation we are all in. We still continue to provide support by all means possibly can to our Fil-am community by the following activities during this times such as :
AFAA’s mag-tagalog tayo program (ENGLISH-FILIPINO-LANGAUGE) via virtual learning experience. We will continue to launch on April 17, 2020 through the collaboration efforts with ST Albert the Great Church. Kindly register to our website www.afaaonline.org to enroll for kids and adults under Contact us tab.
AFAA’s support our Fil-Am health care worker and community fund raising drive (donations/solicitations) we encourage everyone to donate to AFAA by your annual membership contribution and or simply donate via our www.afaaonline.org website for us to purchase essential kits such as gloves, N-95 mask to be given to our Fil-Am health care workers. We are in partner with our Asian Community the NAAO here in Austin Texas. Our first donation count drive is set on 04/02/20. AFAA as we all know is an active 501 c 3 non-profit and we will issue an IRS determination letter to those who have donated simply send us your info to where we can send.
AFAA’S CENSUS 2020 drive we need to participate and be counted during the Census 2020 drive, this also generate funding for our community coming from our government, I believed most of us have received their census 2020 packet via mail box and if not simply go to www.2020census.gov to enlist and be counted.
Let us come together during this times to support each other thru donations for our fil-am healthcare professionals such as nurses and doctors. Also this is the time to re-learn our Filipino culture through our EFL program. Introduce our language to our fil-am community while staying at home, at the same time let’s be counted through the 2020 census drive for we are the beneficiary of this cause.
Let’s stay safe everyone.
