Women Helping Others

Community Association

It all started with a dream, a conversation between friends over coffee, and a dozen women willing to exchange their weekly lunch-out-with-the-girls for a brown bag and the chance to make a difference in their local community. It was a small beginning that led to great things. WOMEN HELPING OTHERS (WHO) has evolved to a force over 300 women strong, who collectively make a big impact on community-based organizations and improve life for many. WHO meets monthly — advancing the common good and strengthening quality of life through donations of our time, our service, and our financial assistance; while fostering inclusive camaraderie and fellowship. Scroll Down / Click the Photos To Learn More

WHO volunteers and donates to nonprofit organizations throughout Williamson County. We have supported them by sponsoring fundraisers, volunteering, donating money, and spreading the word that these nonprofits need help. In 2023 alone, we contributed $160,000 to these community-based organizations through membership contributions and collaborations with Sun City neighborhoods and the Georgetown community. WHO works together with Meals on Wheels, a third-party fundraiser with Opportunities for Williamson and Burnet Counties, which also receives a matching donation. There's so much to be done! Won't you help us?
