The Caring Place Hours Reminder

Georgetown, TX  This is a reminder release of new hours at The Caring Place. Executive Director Ginna O’Connor shares, “The pandemic created logistical challenges for The Caring Place, and I am proud to say we managed each one without losing sight of our mission to provide for basic needs in our community. Our supporters offered us patience and grace to make that happen, and we can’t believe how far we have come in the last two years. We used the time to make many needed improvements in  Food Pantry and other operations. While this isn’t the final step in resuming pre-pandemic services, we are excited about the strides we have made in order to serve more people, more effectively.”
