Veterans food boxes

The COVID-19 pandemic, inflation and other issues have wreaked havoc on many local budgets this year, making it difficult for those who were already living paycheck-to-paycheck.  

Over the past five years, members of the Williamson County Republican Career Women have raised funds to purchase Thanksgiving food boxes for local veterans and their families who aren’t able to provide their own Thanksgiving dinner. Working with the Fieldstone Farms Publix store management, this year, WCRCW was able to provide 10 veterans in the Veterans Treatment Court program and 10 other Williamson County veterans with an entire Thanksgiving dinner box.  

Each box contains a 10- to 12-pound turkey, 2.5 pounds of mashed potatoes, 2.5 pounds of dressing, 32 ounces of turkey gravy, 16 ounces of cranberry orange relish, a package of rolls, 16 ounces of marshmallow delight, a pumpkin pie and a gallon of unsweet iced tea. 

“We wanted to help some local veterans who won’t have a Thanksgiving meal,” WCRCW member Andy Taylor said. “We are all so grateful to our veterans for protecting us.”
