Welcome to Willis ISD's NEW
Wildkat Resource Center
We are excited to announce the new Wildkat Resource Center (WRC), formerly known as the parent center, will be fully up and running for the 2021-2022 school year. The WRC is being led by District Outreach Liaison, Kindra Schiffner. The WRC will offer FREE items for WISD employees, students, and their families in need of assistance. When someone within our school district encounters hard times, we will assist them. The WRC will provide clothing, undergarments and hygiene products monthly to our families in need. The new WRC will not accept donations of any household items or furniture. We are currently taking donations by appointment only. Wildkat Resource Center is located at 204 W. Rogers Rd. Willis, TX 77378
How to Receive Assistance
If you are a WISD student, employee, or have a child living within your home who attends WISD and are in need of assistance, please reach out to us. You can also reach out to your child’s campus counselor or administration. We are open Monday-Friday, 7:30-4:30 by appointment only.
Sponsors and Donations
Wildkat Resource Center is made possible through sponsorships and donations. We are currently taking donations by appointment only. If you are interested in sponsoring the center, please reach out to Mrs. Schiffner.
Serving at the Center
From time to time, the center will put out a call for volunteer assistance. This will be done on a scheduled basis. There is also an opportunity for our older students (middle and high school age) to volunteer at the center for community service hours throughout the summer. We will need lots of help this summer getting ready for the new year!
