Just Because Christmas Project
'Families Helping Families'
Tino Hernandez envisioned a dream to help his local community, and in the late 80's, with the help and support of his family Just Because Christmas was founded. While Tino was the director for Just Because Christmas, one of his daughter's, Laura also became really involved and followed her dads passion to help others.
The Hernandez family then started helping a handful of families with Christmas gifts and dinner with the help of the community. From then on every year the amount of families grew. Today Just Because Christmas reaches out to over 700 families who are in need of help due to job situations, illnesses, and or financial means as well as 100 military families who are with Wounded Warriors, and 100 families through Headstart. Just Because serves the Williamson county area and the surrounding communities.
Throughout the year Just Because also hands out care packages to local cancer patients and assists the communities with yearly events.
