Forging Connections, The Lead's focus on nonprofits set for Aug. 22-26

It's a week of discussing those who make a difference in our communities.

Starting Monday morning, The Lead Live is hosting a week of discussions with nonprofit groups that serve our community. With the support of The Community Foundation of The Texas Hill Country, we are interviewing 35 nonprofit groups next week.

Each nonprofit has 20 minutes to share its story and efforts here in Kerr County. We are looking forward to how you can help make this week even more incredible.
