Williamson County residents and community members will be able to donate to nonprofits closer to home as Amplify Wilco Day—a 24-hour giving event in conjunction with Amplify Austin Day—draws closer.

About the event

Organized by I Live Here I Give Here, Amplify Wilco Day is a hyperlocal giving campaign highlighting Williamson County nonprofits that will take place March 6-7 from 6 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Over 60 nonprofits across the county are participating in this inaugural event, including the Central Texas SPCA, Drive a Senior Northwest, Faith in Action Georgetown and Operation Liberty Hill, to name a few.

Though the main event is still days away, Williamson County locals can begin donating early to any of the participating Amplify Wilco nonprofits online.

Quote of note

“We know that the needs and the services provided in Williamson County are very different from those in Austin and other parts of Central Texas, so we’re really excited to be able to do this for the first time,” said Robynne Parkington of I Live Here I Give Here during the Feb. 22 Cedar Park City Council meeting.
