COVID-19: A Kindness Report

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has taken up much of our time and attention since mid-March. Whether you’re scrolling through Facebook or reading the news, there certainly has been an influx of news covering reported cases, economic strain on our favorite small businesses, unemployment, and feelings of solitude due to our community’s social distancing guidelines.

During this pandemic, we are blessed to say that our OWBC community members, rather than breaking apart during a challenging time, have instead banded together. As the area’s local community action agency, we are an essential business and have continued operations. In the last month, especially, we have received so much kindness from our Williamson and Burnet County communities. We have received food and supply donations, increased volunteerism, and monetary donations from both anonymous donors and partners (not to mention staff going above and beyond to make sure our clients are cared for).

Consider this infographic our “Kindness Report,” capturing all of the kindness we have received in March and April. We can’t thank our community enough for stepping in to lend a helping hand.
