What We Do:

Father and son free shopping under our clothing assistance program

  • Six days a week we provide emergency assistance in the form of food, clothing, resource education and financial aid to Wilson County residents.
  • The Help Center distributed over 30,000 pounds of food to feed the hungry in our county last year alone.
  • Our clothing program has provided more than 1,000 coats each year to warm the needy.
  • Free medical equipment is available.
  • We collect, sort, recycle and sell clothing and household items of any type donated by the community.
  • The Help Center staff educates people on ways to utilize assistance programs that are available in Wilson County.
  • The Wilson County Community Help Center will come in contact with more residents each week than any other agency in this county.

Challenges:

  • Rising local need has placed huge strains on the Help Center assistance funds.
  • Decreased funding has resulted in laid off staff at the Help Center.
  • Some help programs have been diminished and some may have to be eliminated.

How You Can Help:

My little hands can help. Can yours?

  • Make monetary donations, large or small, one time or every month.
  • Donate your gently used items to be given away or sold to help finance the assistance programs.
  • Donate your time at the Wilson County Help Center
  • Involve your friends, family and church and help us educate the community as to the tremendous amount of good work and good will the Help Center provides our citizens.

  • WCCHC will be closed today due to staff illness and weather conditions. We will resume on Thursday the 11th of February. - Ben Spicer / Executive Director

  • If WCCHC were a kid and we were being tucked into bed for a long winter night we feel well taken care of! Thanks to Leadership Wilson Class of 2016 for supplying us with 208 pounds worth of the things that we needed most. Your response so quickly after your tour last Wednesday was humbling. Thanks for embracing our mission! On the heels of Leadership Wilson we received another great donation from a great corporate friend Leviton of 462 pounds of caring in the same things we need most. Thanks for the staple supplies of Soup, Saltines, Pork & Beans and canned meats! Keep it coming Wilson County! - Ben Spicer / Executive Director

    I love focusing on good news. I laugh as I say this but I wish you liked good news as well as you like the bad! My post about the bad donations has reached 20,000 viewers and we welcome the support of the 100+ additional followers that have joined us as we continue to give that hand up to our beloved Wilson County! Here is a shout out to Journey Church for their volunteer work day and the gals that helped us 'get it together' in our Wedding Dress / Formal Dress area! Ladies it looks fantastic and shoppers are really getting excited about our bottom of the barrel pricing on new prom dresses wedding dresses and formal dresses. Thank you! - Ben Spicer / Executive Director

    To all my Facebook friends. I'm passing this on to help enlighten the problem the Help Center faces with the unwanted dumping of furniture and other items that people just drop after hours. Many of you know I have been a volunteer at the Help Center for several years and currently sit on its board of directors and I can attest that although the problem is not new it seems to be getting worse. Ben and his staff are doing a terrific job and I am so proud of all of them but Ben is right. Some mornings it takes 2 hours or more to clean up the mess. I know because I've helped clean it up. Please help spread the word. We love your donations of good useable items but can't use the trash. Every dollar spent in cleaning up the mess is one less dollar we have to help give someone a hand up. Ben and staff, thank you again for all you do. We know you are there because of the love in your heart you have for others and we appreciate that love. God bless you all!!!

    As I pull into work to begin the process of 'giving that hand up' to Wilson County I find myself so grateful to you who support us in so many ways.  WCCHC Facebook Family you are the heart and soul of our mission.   With that being said, I feel my own heart & soul grow a little more jaded and my blood reaching a boiling level to be greeted with this dilapidated heap of badly stained, broken down furniture now further destroyed by a very heavy frost.  Nowhere in our title is the word dump.  No one should even remotely think 'this is better than nothing.  I think i'll donate this to WCCHC. '   I wish I could reach the audience that needs to be educated about appropriate donations.  I know that audience is not you our supporters.   When you tell your neighbors and friends about us please be proactive in spreading the word that donations should enrich the lives that we so ardently want to give a 'hand up' to not degrade them by saying through your donations that they deserve our trash and pour salt upon the wounds of their misfortunes.  If what is being donated just needs 'a little repair' then repair it before you donate it.  If it's an embarrassment to be seen giving then take it to the many recycling stations appropriately placed throughout Wilson County.  Thanks for allowing me to platform this burden to you.  I'm off to waste my time on a mess so that I can then begin the work I Intended to do of giving that 'hand up' to Wilson County and not a 'clean up.'  You are wished the best of days that God can shower down upon you.  Thanks for all that you do.  -  Ben Spicer / Executive Director

  • Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day! I hope this message finds you safe and warm and filled with good food. We are here as we are every Monday, helping those in need and giving that hand up to others so they may be blessed. Admittedly it's a bit slow today and we are finding this a chance to catch up. We've put $400 of your financial contributions to work as two of our employees had to go shopping for food box supplies. I don't know why I hate it when this spending happens but our food supplies deplete quickly and food donations do not always keep our shelves full with the things we need the most. Today we had to purchase, canned meats, soups and pork & beans. These items are staple to our food boxes. If you are able to help us, especially with these three vital items, it will keep the cash we spend dedicated to other needs that financial funding will better serve. If the gates are open, pull on through and we'll put your food donations to work right away. Thanks family! We love you and all that you do to keep us going! - Ben Spicer / Executive Director

  • I feel like a CPA crunching numbers and entering information regarding the 2015 wild ride that we have just completed. We are already flying through 2016 and specifically January!

    We had a wonderful evening of fellowship last night as WCCHC hosted a Food Pantry Forum. Twelve plus churches and agencies came together to discuss hunger in Wilson County. Many in-roads were made as new awareness of each other's services were awakened, new partnerships were formed and successful tips in fighting hunger were shared. The consensus of the group as we finished up was our time together was productive and suggestions of further meetings seemed appealing. If your church or agency within Wilson County would like be a part of future sessions please let us hear from you. Thanks to John Grant for championing this initial gathering. - Ben Spicer / Executive Director

  • I can't believe how fast this holiday season is flying by. It all began for me when we had to start getting Christmas out into the store prior to even Halloween. It's been a running joke that I'm always putting up trees whenever any of you stop in to shop or visit. Your generosity in donations this year has been both overwhelming and humbling. I'm so honored how you have embraced our cause and partnered with us in so many ways! Many of you have brought holiday treats. The season has been flying by so fast that I have fallen behind in posting our thank you to so many that help us. It is really a group effort that makes this happen. Take a look at this who's who community list of givers! Thank you first to The Senior Adult Classes at West Hills Baptist Church for 104 canned meats to help us with our food boxes. This has been their second annual canned meat drive and we hope there are many more ahead. Thank you to Lebanon High School once again for a 9,131 pound food drive! That was a blessing and a real recharge to our many depleted categories of food. Thank you to Publix for a 6,470 pound much needed restock. Thank you Pinnacle Bank for a 72 pound food donation. Thank you to the Twin State Iris Society for a 92 pound food drive. Thank you to Select Physical Therapy for a 226 pound food drive. Thank you to Barton's Creek Baptist for 85 pounds. Thank you to Elmcroft for 108 pounds of food in your recent food drive. thank you to Wilson County Schools for 63 pounds of food. Thank you to Wilson County School Nutrition Dept. for 348 pounds of food. Thank you to a new company out of West Wilson County called Oporal who donated 172 pounds of frozen turkeys. Thank you to Bethlehem United Methodist Church for 59 pounds. Thank you to Wilson County Master Gardners for a 55 pound food donation that also included personal hygiene products and toilet paper. Finally thank you to Prospect for a 348 pound food drive. This is their second annual drive too with many future years ahead. I know I have missed some of you in this list. I haven't even included companies and individuals that contribute to us on a monetary basis. I think this community is amazing! Please thank some of these organizations when you get a chance. Don't look for us on Christmas Eve Day and Christmas Day. We will be closed. Merry Christmas Wilson County and thank you for all that you do. - Ben Spicer / Executive Director

  • Today is Larry Neely's last day here at WCCHC. We will miss his invaluable knowledge that he put to work so well in receiving. Be praying good health for him as he is leaving us due to some back issues that do not need to escalate any further. God Bless you Larry and thank you so much for your contributions to the WCCHC family! With that being said we do not want to leave this position vacant very long! We are on the hunt to fill some big shoes with a part time Receiving position that will work on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and every other Saturday. This will equate to about 20 - 25 hours each week. This individual will need to be comfortable with lifting 50 pounds and loading as well as unloading incoming donations and outgoing purchases. If you or someone you know is looking please send them our way ASAP! Please share as you always do. Larry, thank you again for your service to WCCHC! - Ben Spicer

  • It's almost here. This Saturday is our sixth annual Empty Bowls luncheon and silent auction. It will be at Cumberland Presbyterian Church from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. Tickets are available at the door and for $20.00 you get a soup lunch, entertainment by Debi and the Doo Wops, a chance to bid on some really fantastic auction items and get to take home a bowl created by a resident of Wilson County as a reminder that at any time, someone's bowl is always empty! Every dollar raised goes to support the food pantry of the Help Center helps to end hunger in Wilson County. If you can't make it to the event, please consider making a monitory donation to help support this wonderful endeavor. Together, we can take a big bite out of ending hunger right here in Wilson County! Thank you!

  • I just wanted to take a moment today to thank Performance FOODSERVICE - Lester for a generous company wide effort that brought WCCHC 602 cans of food weighing in at 589 pounds and a wonderful check made up of donations from the company employees of $2,748.00 to be used to purchase foods that we are running short on in our pantry! You've blown us away once again with your kindness and community spirit and we thank you so much for giving us this much needed boost in the arm as we head into the colder months! - Ben Spicer / Executive Director
