Organizations Stepping Up to Assist Others in Need

Community non-profits and faith-based organizations in Williamson County are stepping in to fill an identified gap in services. The Community Organizations Active in Disaster (COAD) have set up drop-off donation sites for non-medical items to be delivered to vulnerable populations and elderly residents. They are primarily in need of new goods in original packaging that are in short supply such as hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes and cleaning supplies. A new Mask Brigade is making cloth face coverings for first responders and medical personnel to wear over N-95 masks. To learn more about joining the Mask Brigade, click here.
