About This Activity

Healthy People of Willacy County  is a proactive organization working towards improving the overall health of the community through the focus of increasing physical activity, improving eating habits, providing educational resources for the youth in our community, and creating a safe welcoming environment for residents. As a community organization we are focusing our efforts on the needs of the community that were set forth by the community needs assessment that was conducted in the area. Many families wanted to see more educational assistance, youth oriented activities, and increase resources for drug abuse and teen pregnancy.

The coalition sees the importance in engaging in community events and is currently in the process of planning a back to school 5K that will benefit our community garden project. This event will take place on Saturday August 30, 2014.  In efforts to fund the garden’s expenses such as water system, fencing, liability insurance, garden tools, shed, gates, locks, and monthly water fees. We are looking for the support of local community members, businesses and organizations to help make this event a success.
