The Brown Santa program is a 19-year-old community outreach program of the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office that brings Christmas to children whose families are at or below the poverty level. This program is a cooperative effort between the Sheriff’s Office employees and citizen volunteers and has helped in providing a happier holiday season to needy Williamson County families by providing toys, books and other presents to children.
The Austin Creative Alliance is funded in part by the City of Austin through the Economic Development Department's Cultural Arts Division and by grants from Texas Commission on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts which believes that a great nation deserves great art. The Creative Alliance also receives generous in-kind support from CreateAustin, and Time Warner Cable News. We are also grateful for the ongoing support and participation of our members and patrons.
