Donations received during the 2016 Aggies Helping Others Food Drive and fundraising campaign were multiplied exponentially. Those donations provided ~16,000 meals to Houston area citizens suffering from food insecurity.
Through partnerships Aggies Helping Others has developed, every dollar donated equals ~four meals, or can be turned into 6 pounds of food (or more based on market conditions).
Thank You very much for your generosity, you helped to… BTHO (Beat The Hell Outta) Hunger!
Pictures from the event below:
April 2015, Aggies Helping Others had its first fundraising event of 2015. The event was a great success helping the foundation by raising money which will defray the foundation’s start-up costs. The Aggies Helping Others Board of Directors wishes to thank all those who participated, the generous donors, and corporate sponsors.
Last year our organization donated 41,694 lb. of food to the Houston Food Bank. This year, we expect to once again increase our contribution to the Houston Food Bank, as we’ve done the past 5 years.
