“All Wilson County families are welcome to come for assistance with food, beverages and paper items, which we are distributing at no charge to those who qualify,” Evans said. “First-time applicants must be able to show Wilson County residency with a utility bill in the applicant’s name, along with a government-issued photo ID such as Tennessee driver’s license and proof of total household income. Those would like to help as a volunteer, please arrive between 8-8:30 a.m. For groups of six or more, call Janis Ayers at the office at 615-453-5777 or register online in order to participate so we can plan accordingly.”
Last month, several students from Mt. Juliet High School’s Interact Club helped with the food giveaway, and Evans said as the were leaving, “These young people had so much energy and enthusiasm. It made me feel like a teenager again.”
