OWBC Receives BBVA Foundation Grant for Burnet County

The BBVA Foundation has generously awarded Opportunities for Williamson and Burnet Counties (OWBC) a $5,000 grant to assist with COVID-19 resources and funding in Burnet County.

“As our trusted partner, we believe in what you are doing to support our most vulnerable communities right now. Your organization has been selected to receive an unrestricted general operating grant from the BBVA Foundation in the amount of $5000 to be used at your discretion to support the work you are doing in Burnet County for your clients and our community during this pandemic. “

– Yolanda Davila – SVP, Community Relations Executive- Texas

With this funding, OWBC will be able to continue providing meals for Meals on Wheels seniors. Currently, Meals on Wheels seniors are all receiving a two-week supply of shelf-stable and frozen meals via home delivery. In addition, the Head Start sites are all shut down. This funding allows us to continue feeding our Head Start boys and girls their breakfast, lunch, and snack in a curbside capacity.

We appreciate the support of local businesses and community members to help neighbors in need. Thank you, BBVA Foundation!
