This week Austin Tech Alliance (ATA), an Austin based non-profit, has launched a new website for the Austin Tech community: lendahandATX.org. Lend a Hand ATX helps skilled tech volunteers and those in need make critical community connections during the COVID-19 crisis, and beyond. As an Austin based company ourselves and in this unique time, it’s time to tap our local tech community and ask them to lend a hand for all Austinites.
Liz Coufal, one of ATA’s Advisory Board member, said: “We didn’t see an entity that was galvanizing stay-at-home tech workers for volunteer opportunities, so we created Lend a Hand ATX.”
ATA knows that stay-at-home tech workers have the desire and in-demand skills that our community needs. They are asking the community to step up in the fields of branding, content, design, hardware needs, strategy, social media, IT services, and tutoring to support nonprofits, community members and small businesses in Austin.
