AISD day of service on April 1 is no joke

Friday, April 1, 2022 by Tai Moses

For many people April 1 is April Fools’ Day. But it’s also the day Austin ISD has designated a school holiday as a way to honor Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta. Teachers and staff will be volunteering their time to participate in a districtwide organized day of service, and the district encourages families to reach out to their schools to find out how they too can pitch in. Each campus will have its own projects planned for students and staff in addition to an organized event at Central Texas Food Bank, where volunteers will be “cleaning, sorting, boxing, and preparing donated food and non-food items.” 9 a.m-noon, Friday, April 1, Central Texas Food Bank, 6500 Metropolis Dr.
