Chat & Chew Continues

Georgetown, TX, March 12, 2018 The Caring Place first hosted “Chat & Chew” in January as a new way to show people what they are all about. That event proved to be a successful way to engage the community. Future dates of the lunch event are Wednesday, March 28th and Friday, May 18th from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at The Caring Place located on 2000 Railroad Avenue.

Chat & Chew is a free event that will begin with an introduction from Executive Director, Ginna O’Connor. She says, “We hope that people that have never walked through our doors will use this opportunity to find out what we are all about. We work hard to show the heart of the organization through stories and media and most definitely word of mouth, but this is our opportunity to show you the inner workings of The Caring Place.”

Community Engagement Manager, Rita Turner looks forward to the event as a way to cover all the basics of the organization. “This event will inform our community on who we help, the assistance we offer, our amazing history, how we are funded and the impact we are making in Georgetown and northern Williamson County. A question and answer session along with a tour will give guests the full picture of The Caring Place.”

“We hope through this event, guests not only get their questions answered, but leave knowing the long lasting legacy being created through this organization. It’s an organization with a heart for helping people in a tangible way. It’s community-created and community-supported, making it an incredible resource in northern Williamson County,” says O’Connor.

The next Chat & Chews are on Wednesday, March 28th and Friday, May 18th from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at The Caring Place. RSVP is required through Rita Turner at 512-943-0702 or
