Help Us to Help Others
Wilson County Department of Social Services has a variety of volunteer and donor opportunities available. Some suggestions are listed:
Donations are accepted year-round and are tax deductible. Your donation can be mailed to:

Help a Foster Child in Need
Foster parent volunteers provide a safe, loving, temporary home to a Wilson County child whose family is experiencing a crisis. Training is mandatory and provided. If you are interested in helping foster children, but are unable to provide a temporary home, consider making a tax deductible donation.
Help during the Holidays
The Holiday Program provides food, gifts and other resources to needy Wilson County families during the holiday season. All holiday donations are tracked through a database to avoid duplication.
Help Someone Be Prepared for Work
These employment programs help unemployed or underemployed Wilson County residents as they look for work. We have a need for help with one-time work related expenses such as uniforms, work boots and transportation repairs.
Help a Senior Stay Connected to the World
Wilson County seniors participate in an educational, motivational day of wellness inspired activities at our Senior Awareness Day. Your donation helps us ensure that numerous Seniors are able to participate in this event.
Help a Teen Stay in School
Teen parents are encouraged to stay in school and graduate. Staff coordinate mentoring, educational, and work opportunities to motivate teens to stay in school and delay a second pregnancy. Incentives for achieving educational milestones have proven effective; we need your help providing incentives.
Help a Family Stay Warm
During the winter months, many of our residents struggle to make ends meet and to provide heating for their family. Your donation helps us ensure that we are able to serve families in need.
