ON-GOING COMMUNITY SERVICE

'Tis the season! AGA is working with Harvest House to provide Christmas cheer to foster children. Many of these children come from difficult backgrounds filled with pain and trauma and have never experienced the true joy that Christmas can bring.  Help us collect gifts for the 600+ foster children. We will be accepting donations now until Wednesday, December 14, 2022. Please refer to the flyer for suggestions on what gifts you would like to donate. Feel free to donate other items not listed.

AGA is seeking a volunteer from each agency to coordinate donation collections. This volunteer will also hand off the donations to the Community Service Committee by 12:00 p.m. Wednesday, December 14, 2022. Volunteers will receive community service credit for their effrots. Please contact the Community Service Committee as follows: Vanessa Valencia at vdrvalencia@hotmail.com or Romar Tapaceria at romartapaceria@gmail.com.
