In 2008, the Liberty Hill Community Food Bank was in a local church, offering food once a month to 45 families in LHISD. It was from this service, Operation Liberty Hill evolved.
As word got around that help was available, our operations expanded, and we moved into a small house loaned by a local church. We started accepting clothing donations, too. When quantity outpaced need, we held yard sales to help support the food pantry. Demand once again had us bursting at the seams, and the Lord once again provided, and we rented a building on Hwy. 29. Then, outgrowing our location happened again!
In 2015, OLH moved to its current location, a property we rent from Williamson County. This expansion allowed us to open our Thrift Store. Wilco Master Gardeners helped us plant a community garden to provide fresh produce to our food pantry. In the years since, as we continued to expand our services, we partnered with Central Texas Food Bank and local grocery stores to continue meeting needs as our service area expanded to Leander, Bertram and Briggs.
Today, Operation Liberty Hill continues to respond to the Biblical call to love and serve one another and care for those in need. Sales from our Thrift Store help stock food pantry shelves and provides free clothing, shoes, and other household items to those who need them. We are grateful for the continued community support through your donations - financial, food, time, clothing, toys, and more - and by shopping in our Thrift Store, where you can find great deals and special treasures.
Once again, by the grace of God, we have outgrown this location as well. OLH is in the process of looking for a permanent home. Please join us in praying for the Lord to lead the way, open the doors and smooth the path.
