Welcome to the website of the Town Lake Chapter of The Links, Incorporated. The Links, Incorporated is a public service, non-partisan volunteer organization that has over 14,000 members comprised of 282 chapters in 41 states. Chapters are also located in the District of Columbia, and the Commonwealth of the Bahamas.
The members of the Town Lake Chapter are committed to community service. We have served the central Texas area for over 26 years. We are an organization of dedicated women who are active in the community and provide purposeful work.
The Town Lake Chapter has provided a variety of educational and nutritional programs for students. Our signature program is working with the Settlement Home where we mentor sixth-eighth grade girls living in foster care. We also mentor fifth grade students at Norman Elementary in computers and technology.
Additionally, the chapter continues to provide meals for students through Kidís Cafe by supporting the Capital Area Food Bank with a $5,000 donation on an annual basis. The Chapter has been in partnership with the Capital Area Food Bank for over ten years and has provided funding to serve nutritious after school meals to children as a safety net to enhance their health, growth, and development.
Each year the chapter provides a $20,000 four year scholarship to a deserving high school student. Two additional scholarships in the amount of $2,500 are provided annually to students at Huston-Tillotson University and Austin Community College. Over the past ten years, funding for scholarships to students has exceeded $300,000. Additionally, the chapter supports United Negro College Fund (UNCF) and Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU).
We are proud of these achievements and could not do them without community support. We hope you will learn more about our programs and support our efforts to make a difference in our community.
