The holiday season is all about giving, and here in Round Rock, we take that sentiment to heart!
This week, community volunteers joined forces with the Round Rock Police Department, Meals on Wheels, and Home Depot to help decorate the homes of local residents. All together, more than 1,800 lights were installed.
During the event, one resident noted that she had never had Christmas lights before. Her son had promised to hang some for her, but unfortunately never had the opportunity before he passed away in 2010. The resident was incredibly grateful to have so many people come to her home and decorate it for the very first time.
“It was amazing to see Round Rock come together to brighten the holidays for these folks. This is what community is all about,” said Joe Brehm, Community Development Administrator for the City of Round Rock.
Considered such a success in its first year, plans are already being made to expand and improve it for next year. Thank you to Home Depot, Meals on Wheels and the Round Rock Police Department for making it possible for us to help bring a little ho-ho-hometown holiday spirit to the lives of a few local residents!
