Monday, March 30, 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:
Home manufactured cloth face coverings*
Latex free gloves
Eye protection goggles or glasses
Adult and child diapers
*A Mask Brigade is creating home manufactured cloth face coverings. To learn more about joining the Mask Brigade, click here.
The COAD is also accepting a limited list of non-parishable food items (All items must be in a sealed package/ unopened, in date and no glass) including:
Mash potato boxes
Canned pasta sauce
Chicken broth (box or can)
Plastic jars of peanut butter
Baby food (pouched)

Other items not listed above will not be accepted at this time. These items will be distributed to social service and non-profit organizations who will deliver them to Williamson County residents in need.
