Thank you for your 2015 golf tournament participation

Dear Golf Tournament Participant or Donor,

Howdy!!

The Aggies Helping Others board is working to wrap up the final numbers from the golf tournament, but we couldn’t let this week pass without sending along a most heartfelt THANK YOU for your generosity!

Aside from end of year giving or additional giving toward the yearly food drive, the golf tournament is the Aggies Helping Others’ largest fundraiser.

Several of you said you “will be back next year,” so we look forward to your participation in next year’s tournament. If you have a desire to be of “self-less service” and would like to volunteer with Aggies Helping Others, contact us and let us know.

Again, thank you to all who came out and participated or donated via the Aggies Helping Others website.

Sincerely,

Aggies Helping Others Board

What’s the Scoop?

Aggies Helping Others was founded as a non-profit corporation (501(c)3 application on file) in 2015.
Aggies Helping Others got its start in 2010 with members from Class 2012 of Texas A&M’s Executive MBA program. What began as a spur of the moment, food collection (~500 lb. in 2010) has grown exponentially (with
> 40,000 lb. donated given to the Houston Food Bank in 2014)

Board of Directors:

JD Daniel: Chairman
James Dwyer: Vice-Chairman
Mark Smith: Secretary & Legal
Amy Schwab: Treasurer
Joshua Blair: Director
Rich Goodrich: Director
Rich Hardy: Director

The Future…

The Board of Aggies Helping Others is concerned with philanthropy at multiple levels and through multiple avenues.

The board is in discussions now about starting an annual “Aggies Helping Others Scholarship.”

Stay tuned and keep those donations coming, as your partnership enables Aggies Helping Others to pay it forward!

Happy Holidays and Best Wishes for a Prosperous & Healthy 2016!

The Aggies Helping Others board wants to say THANK YOU for your support in 2015 and wishes you and yours the very best Holiday Season and New Year.

 

Better Returns Than the Stock Market!


Did you know that every hard earned dollar you donate to Aggies Helping Others multiplies exponentially? It is true. Through a longstanding partnership with Country Fresh Inc. (a fresh fruit
and vegetable distributor headquartered in Houston, Texas), every dollar donated to Aggies Helping Others can be turned into 4 - 7 lb.* of fresh fruit and vegetables to the Food Bank.!

*Historical average through wholesale pricing which fluctuates with the market.!

2015 Spring Newsletter

Aggies Helping Others Spring 2015 Update

 

Last April, 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.

Aggies Helping Others recently launched the foundation’s website: www.aggieshelpingothers.org.  Please visit our site and help support the Aggies Helping Others foundation, as your donations support the foundation’s charitable endeavors.

A little more about Aggies Helping Others…in 2010, a group of Texas A&M Executive MBA class XII students decided to organize a food drive for the Houston Food Bank.  A short five years later, the food drive has grown exponentially (from ~500 lb. donated in 2010 to over 40,000 lb. donated in 2014), but those same Texas A&M former students have launched this non-profit foundation, Aggies Helping Others.

In the true spirit of Texas A&M’s selfless service, the foundation strives to support the health and well-being of everyone in need, through donations, events, and special programs.  Aggies Helping Others supports individuals and the community at large.
