Each year, AAGD members give back to our communities. As community providers, we want to ensure that our residents and future residents have the resources they need.
AAGD 2021 Community Service Project
This past year we worked with two organizations - Jonathan’s Place and Buckner - to help stretch their grant funds for onsite renovations! To simplify the process of finding AAGD members to donate and/or discount their supplies and services to the project, AAGD hosted a reverse auction. We divided the needs of these organizations into small projects and allowed our members to donate supplies and/or labor to help lower the cost.
In total, our membership donated cash, supplies, and/or labor in the amount of $178,000! Below is a list of this year's contributors.
AAGD 2019 - 2020 Community Service Project
2020's project was put on hold due to the pandemic, so we shifted our focus to be able to help through the contribution of funds to the Union Gospel Mission of Greater Dallas. UGM Dallas's mission is to minister to the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of the homeless in Dallas County. These dollars will help assist in ensuring that they are able to continue helping those that need it most during this time.
This year our Community Service Committee raised $6,228 along with a $5,000 AAGD match totaling $11,228 final contribution! Thank you to all who generously gave to this year's campaign.
