AUSTIN, Texas -- Amplify CU will give a home makeover on Wednesday and Thursday to a needy local family, the Yancy/Cousins family in nearby Round Rock.
During the makeover 20 Amplify employee volunteers will work to deep-clean the house, do repairs, install new carpeting and laminate, and provide new furniture. The most important thing Amplify is giving the family is financial counseling to help them reduce their debts so they can afford to take care of the home.
The family will stay at Best Western in Round Rock, which donated three hotel rooms for two nights.
The family is part of the Austin American-Statesman’s Season for Caring program, which highlights the needs of 12 families and helps hundreds of others through reader donations. The family was nominated by WBC Opportunities, a nonprofit agency that serves Williamson and Burnet counties.
