Full Tummies volunteers deliver holiday food for 3,674 Williamson Countians

United Way of Williamson County Patricia Hart Society’s annual Full Tummies Warm Hearts program concluded early Thursday with 86 volunteer drivers delivering containers of holiday food donations to schools and nonprofit agencies to serve 878 Williamson County families (representing 3,674 individuals).

Included in the donations are nonperishable foods and gift cards for perishable items, plus anything the donor would like to include such as warm socks, games, or other treats and decorations. Local schools and nonprofits handle the confidential receipt of the baskets for the individuals and families. 324 sponsors from local companies, schools, and individuals shopped and donated food for families who do not have the means to serve or enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal.

Full Tummies Warm Hearts began through the vision of a few women, members of the Patricia Hart Society women’s group, sitting around a table in conversation about our community.

For more than 10 years, 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 United Way’s Thanksgiving food drive possible.
