VISION: A community of hope, kindness, and social justice where poverty has been overcome and all people live with dignity and food security.
MISSION: Helping Hands of Georgetown passionately works with other stakeholders throughout the community to provide a hand up for those who are underserved by offering equitable access to basic necessities including food, clothing, shelter, and financial aid assistance to those in need.
Local native Robert Weimer found himself seeing an increasing need in the city of Georgetown, TX to empower those slightly less fortunate with the means to grow and succeed. With the help of his family, friends, and community supporters – Helping Hands of Georgetown was officially born in 2016!
What started out as providing sandwiches, clothes, and hygiene kits from the trunk of his car has grown into over 700 brown bag lunches each week, a hot meal every Sunday night prepared by generous volunteers and donors each week, 125 pantry bags with items to make at least 5 meals, clothes and shoes that go out on our Mobile Pantry van Monday through Thursday and most recently, we have added financial assistance to those in need (see details at Need a Helping Hand?).
Whatever the need, we hope to continue finding ways (with the help of our VERY generous community) to fill it! This is a Non-Profit that began with heart, and we have faith it will keep growing with HEART!
