A Message from our CEO
- Marjorie Vaneskahian Burr -

Summer has arrived! And while so many of us are excited for the kids to be out of school, to plan our vacations, enjoy cook-outs in the backyard and long days in the pools, that is not the case for all of our Collin County neighbors. While 3 of our children in this county will be
and well-fed all summer long, 1 of every 4 children will go hungry. Those are the statistics. However, ACO is working hard to change that. Again, all summer long our Kids' Summer Food program is providing bags of specially packed kid-friendly groceries for local children in need. You can help through your donations to support this program and all of our services to help prevent hunger and homelessness and to gain financial security through our Education and Employment Services.

Speaking of donating, it's time to GIVE WHERE YOU LIVE! ACO's annual summertime campaign raises funds to provide support year-round for the hundreds of families we see every month. Please help us continue these vital programs by GIVING WHERE YOU LIVE- online or by mail. 

We have some exciting news ... (read more

Our summer campaign "Give Where You Live" will roll out in mid-June, and we are counting on our caring community members and businesses to help us raise needed funds and food to support our Kids' Summer Food Program, as well as our Back to School Bash to help vulnerable students.

Also, rent, utility, clothing and medical visits don't take vacation in the summer, and we are here to keep providing income support for the individuals and families in need. In addition, ACO offers education and employment services for them to obtain financial stability.

Please join hands with ACO this summer! 


A BIG thank you to our caring individual and groups of volunteers who helped  us during the month
of May, including: 

  • Liberty Mutual sent 100 employee volunteers 
  • Keller Williams had 26 volunteers
