Officers from the Williamson County Republican Career Women gathered at Publix in Fieldstone Farms Tuesday afternoon to serve those who served years ago.
The group partnered with Publix to put together boxes of pumpkin pie, sweet tea and dinner rolls to deliver to 10 military veteran families across Williamson County just in time for Thanksgiving. Each family also gets a pot of mums to decorate their table.
Andy Taylor, coordinator of the project, said the women worked with several departments in Publix to put the boxes together.
“We’re a team here at Publix, and we’re all in this together to make this happen,” said Lonnie Betts, the store’s deli manager.
This is the second year the group has taken on this project. They use their personal vehicles to deliver eight to 10 servings of holiday sides to each home. They plan to continue this project in upcoming years, particularly to serve spouses of fallen soldiers who may not be receiving any benefits.
“We love our veterans,” Taylor said.
