WilCo Employee Food Drive Collects 1,551 Pounds of Food for Local Families

Emloyee Food Drive

Williamson County government employees worked together this holiday season in an effort to help the hungry in Williamson County. The first WilCo employee holiday food drive resulted in donations of 1,551 pounds of food for local families. Collection bins were placed in several county buildings across the county to collect canned goods, rice, pasta, cereal, dried milk and other non-perishable items. 

" We had a great response from county employees. I was super proud that everybody came together as quickly as they did," said Kelley Hernandez, executive assistant for Pct. 4 Commissioner Russ Boles. 

The donations were delivered to Round Rock Serving Center, Hill Country Food Pantry, Hutto Resource Center and Caring Place to be given out to families in need this holiday season. 

"Due to the amazing response from county employees, we think we can top ourselves next year, and we've set a goal to collect one ton, or 449 pounds more than we collected this year," Hernandez said.
