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 made a commitment to assist individuals and families in Williamson County who do not have the means to serve or enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal. For more than a decade, United Way of Williamson County’s corporate and community partners, as well as individual supporters, have “sponsored” anonymous individuals and families, and contributed donated food and their time and resources to make our Thanksgiving food drive possible. Baskets include nonperishable food and gift cards for perishable items, plus anything the donor would like to include such as warm socks, games, treats, and holiday decorations. Local schools and nonprofits handle the confidential receipt of the baskets for the individuals and families.
