ROUND ROCK CARES

Round Rock Cares has been activated in an effort to raise funds for those impacted by the Monday, March 21 tornado in Round Rock.

Round Rock Mayor Craig Morgan and Greater Round Rock Community Foundation Chair Nyle Maxwell announced the initiative Friday, March 25, to assist Round Rock citizens directly affected by the severe weather event. Over $260,000 has already been committed by the Nelson Family Life Foundation, Dell Technologies, the Greater Round Rock Community Foundation, the City of Round Rock, the Round Rock Chamber, Emerson, the Jay Latham family, the Nyle Maxwell family and the Jim Boles family.

An application for tornado survivors to apply for financial assistance will be available in the coming days. Fund founders intend resources to be distributed to tornado survivors as quickly as applications can be received and reviewed.
