Full Tummies, Warm Hearts began through the vision of a few women sitting around a table in conversation about our community. Members of the Patricia Hart Society women’s group committed to assist individuals and families in Williamson County who do not have the means to serve or enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal.
United Way of Williamson County (UWWC) corporate partners and individuals “sponsor” individuals and families, whose names are not revealed, and contribute donated food, time and resources to make this possible. Boxes include nonperishable food and gift cards for perishables, plus anything the sponsor would like to include, such as warm socks, games or other treats or decorations. Volunteer drivers load boxes and deliver to local schools and nonprofits, who then handle the confidential receipt of the baskets by the individuals and families.
We’re grateful for all of the corporate and community sponsors and volunteers who generously gave their time and resources so that 878 local families could enjoy a great Thanksgiving meal.
Workplaces, civic groups, churches, schools, families, and individual supporters came together to help ensure 3,674 people celebrated the holiday with a “full tummy” and a “warm heart.”
We hope that you had a great Thanksgiving as well! Check out photos from this year’s Full Tummies, Warm Hearts activities.
