A Message from Monty
What an incredible first semester we had at ACO! In addition to the ongoing services provided each month, we were able to serve almost 500 children through our
Kids Summer Food Program. Because of the generosity of the community, these children had kid-friendly food to eat throughout the summer. One mother of two young boys told me that she was so thankful for the assistance. "With the boys out of school, I wasn't sure what I was going to do. ACO is such a blessing!" Stories like these warm my heart, and yet they are only possible because of people like you.
Thanks to all who participated in our
Give Where You Live campaign during the summer. While we had a decent response and are grateful for our supporters, we are below our goal for this year, and we still need the help from our community members who have not yet given to help us.
Please save the date for
North Texas Giving Day on September 20th
, the biggest fundraising event of the country right here. This year, a NEW feature for anyone who wants to broaden their impact is the ability to create your own FUNdraising page to support ACO. I hope you join us as we change lives for the better!
I am very excited to share with you what we have accomplished together so far this year because of the ongoing help we have from our board, financial donors, in-kind donors, volunteers, partners and shoppers. Watch this short video below to see how your help is generating a positive impact in Collin County!
I am so thankful to be a part of ACO and the lives that we impact, and I invite you to join me. Whether through your financial gifts, your volunteering, or your donation of items for our resale store, you can make a difference!
For our neighbors and families in need,
Monty Moore, CEO
