Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts

Even before Hurricane Harvey made landfall on the Texas Gulf Coast, the impact was felt across Texas. In the days that followed, an unprecedented amount of rain caused flooding that will be remembered as one of the worst natural disasters Texas has ever seen. Hurricane Harvey will change lives and communities for generations.

While Williamson County was spared from Harvey's wrath, we know what it takes to rebuild after a natural disaster; it isn't easy, it takes years, and it helps to have the support of caring communities along the way. 

United, we stand with families who lost everything. United, we respond to the immediate and long-term needs of those faced with rebuilding lives and communities. United, we reach out to those who need help and hope as they face a long road to recovery. United, we care. 

Join us as we do our part to help meet the immediate and long-term needs of Texans impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

#WilcoCares Hurricane Supply Drive

Thank you to the thousands of people who responded to our Hurricane Supply Drive. We are no longer accepting supply donations for Hurricane Harvey, but monetary donations are welcome. It will take years to rebuild lives and homes from this event. 

Here's a snapshot of what you provided through the supply drive. 

You sent multiple semi-trucks and countless trailers and trucks full of supplies to Rockport, Victoria, Houston, Port Arthur and Beaumont to help our friends and neighbors know they are not alone. 

Hundreds of Central Texans generously filled the bins - over and over and over again - at the supply collection sites at the Dell Diamond, Mel's Lone Star Lanes, R Bank, Taylor Chamber of Commerce, Toyota of Cedar Park and our offices. Together, you showed just how much #WilcoCares.

Our new friends who sent items to us from Arkansas, Arizona, California, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Virginia, Wyoming, and Wisconsin, you sent kindness and hope to the people of Texas. We are overwhelmed. Thank you!

In the coming days, we will be completing an accounting of the donations and supplies collected in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. Once that is complete, we will post it here.
