5/1/20 – Georgetown Beard Club’s WilCo Strong Campaign was created to fill multiple needs. First and foremost, to raise desperately needed funds for local charities who serve those most vulnerable in these extraordinary times. The funds raised will help feed families experiencing food insecurity during these trying times, provide desperately needed resources for people experiencing domestic violence and other crises, and provide personal protective equipment for front line workers at most risk of exposure. Almost as importantly, it provides a visible way to foster and maintain social connections while capturing the generous spirit of Williamson County residents. Having a WilCo Strong sign in your front yard or the window of your car or business reminds us that we are all in this together.
The giving spirit of our community is strong. While most of us have had to be more frugal with our discretionary spending, for a small sum through our collective efforts we can help three local charities serve our community in this time of need. Our front-end sponsors are local businesses who recognized the value of creating a campaign with the potential to grow into a consistent source of funding for local non-profit groups. As such, we would like to thank Landreth Construction, In-Charge- Electric and Grand Endeavor Homes, and our generous individual supporters for helping us launch this effort.
While initially, the WilCo Strong Campaign will serve three specific Georgetown-based organizations, we hope to see it grow to serve all of Williamson County. WilCo Strong is much larger than the Georgetown Beard Club or even Georgetown, Texas. We recognize that we are a small part of a larger community that rises up to help one another in times of need. WilCo Strong captures the spirit of toughness and kindness embodied by the citizens of Williamson County, Texas. We believe that it is a slogan and a sentiment we can all get behind. If there are other non-profit groups in Williamson County communities, who are considering their own fundraising efforts, we would be honored to have them unite behind our WilCo Strong logo at no cost. If your organization is interested in using the WilCo Strong logo, please contact us through the Georgetown Beard Club website at www.georgetownbeardclub.com.
