5 Ways to Get Involved in the Round Rock Community

Round Rock is a fantastic community to be a part of. Our city is growing and making improvements for residents and families all the time. The City of Round Rock and Round Rock Chamber of Commerce are innovative and welcoming to large and small businesses alike.

5-Ways-Give-Back-Round-Rock-Community

Christa Wilke, the new community manager at Heritage Office Suites in Round Rock, is very aware of all the advantages the city offers for small businesses. “Heritage Office Suites takes pride in being a member of the Round Rock community. We know how important it is to have a place to work and grow your business near where you live.” Ms. Wilke further stated, “Our membership in the Round Rock Chamber keeps us closely tied to our community. We enjoy attending ribbon cuttings for local businesses and hosting networking events for business professionals. Having a support system and strong community ties are key to the successful growth of a company.”

In the growing community of Round Rock, there a many ways to get involved. Civic groups, arts events and local fundraisers are always in need of businesses willing to support and sponsor them throughout the year. Here are a few local organizations to get you started:

Round Rock Chamber of Commerce

The Round Rock Chamber of Commerce is an organization that any business in the local community should be part of. They put on numerous events throughout the year to benefit the community and its businesses. Most recently they put together the Taste of Round Rock at which local restaurants were promoted and the community was served some amazing food! With this and networking events monthly, the chamber is the place any new or existing business should be.

Meals on Wheels in Williamson County

Most people are aware of Meals on Wheels and what they do for the homebound and senior community. What you may not realize is the difference this makes in people’s lives. It not only ensures they have enough to eat and a healthy meal, but also that they have interaction with others and someone is looking out for them. Meals on Wheels is a great way to share the love with your community.

Texas Humane Heroes

Texas Humane Heroes places animals in homes when they have none to call their own. Shelters like this one are always in need of money and extra hands in the form of volunteers. You can volunteer to walk dogs, assist with an adoption drive or even foster an animal looking for their forever home. There is even an option for kids to get involved, so bring the whole family and make a multiplied difference. If you aren’t able to spare the time, have an allergy or other reason for not being able to volunteer, organizations like this can always use donations as well.

Round Rock Operation Blue Santa

Blue Santa is a popular event every year in many communities that helps families who are underprivileged or in crisis at Christmas time. The event is headed up by the police department. In Round Rock you can donate unwrapped toys and wrapping paper all year ‘round. The planning and fundraising for families in need starts early in the year. In April there was a BBQ cook-off, keep an eye out for additional events throughout the year and when their drive really gets rolling. You can help by offering donations or collecting them at your business location.

Professional Women of Williamson County

The Professional Women of Williamson County (PWOW) is a fantastic organization for professional women in the Round Rock area to network with other women and gain valuable education on a number of topics from guest speakers. The group gives back to the community in many ways, but the most prevalent is their scholarship fund, to which all membership fees are donated.

Make sure to share your public service with your own community online through social media and email. If you can get them involved in your project, all the better. You can find even more local groups that need support through Volunteer Match. Find one that aligns with your company or a cause that is close to your heart and volunteer today! There are so many amazing organizations in the Round Rock area that work hard all year round to give back to the community, it’s time someone gives back to them!
