Households Helped in Williamson County

Wilco Gives Banner

Please join us for the fourth annual Wilco Gives, benefiting The Salvation Army Williamson County Service Center – Thursday, September 27, 2018 from 6:00-8:30pm at Reunion Ranch.

This evening of fun and fundraising will feature dinner, dancing to the music of The Debonaires, a silent auction and highlights of how we are keeping families together and preventing homelessness in Williamson County.

The amazing success of last year’s event, which raised more than $39,000, helped The Salvation Army Williamson County Service Center provide services including financial assistance, food and clothing, to 560 men, women and children. Our mission is to prevent homelessness in Williamson County by helping families living in the first stages of financial crisis to move toward self-sufficiency.

Joyce’s Family Story

For many years, Joyce covered The Salvation Army as a photojournalist for the Williamson County Sun. But her relationship with the organization is also personal. When she and her young son Luke faced some difficult times, The Salvation Army was there.

“Being a single mom … it’s not always easy to make ends meet,” Joyce explains. “A couple of different times … I wasn’t sure how I was going to make rent, and they helped me.”

Last summer, Joyce was able to send Luke to Salvation Army Summer Camp.

 “It was his first time going to camp,” she smiles, “but he absolutely loved it. He also talked about this counselor. And that’s the other thing. His father has never been in his life. So to have an opportunity for him to connect, or see male role models, was important.” Joyce sums it up: “I’m very grateful for what The Salvation Army does.”

Through providing rental and utility assistance, The Salvation Army Williamson County Service Center helps families like Joyce’s maintain their housing and avoid homelessness.
