Aggies Helping Others 2018 Holiday Donation Drive was a HUGE success, resulting in $2,590.00 collected from our EMBA, PMBA and MS in Analytics classes at the CityCentre campus in Houston, Texas.
Their generous giving will be donated to the Houston Food Bank where for every dollar raised, the food bank can obtain and distribute $6 in food (current market prices), enough for three meals.
EMBA Class 2020 led the donation drive by donating $1,160! AHO has partnered with Tejas Cookers to select recipients for our inaugural scholarship fund.
Two scholarships will be awarded to deserving Houston HS Seniors this summer in their class name!
Thanks to all the generous Aggies who donated to make these awards possible.
The 2017 Food Drive campaign was a success. We were able to continue our tradition of donating to the area food banks.
For the 2017 campaign, we donated to both Houston Food Bank and Montgomery County Food Banks. Those donations provided ~12,000 meals to Houston area citizens suffering from food insecurity.
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!
