The REACH Project's Giving Tree Campaign

This year during the 2020 Holiday Season, the Aggie Family, will have to deal with the CoronaVirus in one way or another. This will look like less travel, less food, less family time and god forbid less Holiday Joy. 

For many of the Essential Employees on the Texas A&M Campus this will look like being laid off for at least 8 weeks. This will look like not having enough money to pay for rent. This will look like not having enough money to pay for food for themselves and maybe their families. This will look like not being able to pay for utilities during the coldest months of the year. This will look like the absence of the Holiday Joy that comes from having presents under their Christmas Tree’s.

The REACH Project wants to join forces with you to bring some Holiday joy to the lives of those who have risked their life for our sense of “normalcy” this whole Semester. We ask that you consider donating whatever you can afford so that we can provide an Invisible Aggie and their family some Holiday Joy during this unprecedented year. 

With your donation, the REACH Project will buy a Shirt/Jacket, a pair of Pants/Shorts, a pair of shoes and maybe even a toy if we can afford it for each of our REACH Angels. Together we will be able to help restore some Holiday Joy while hopefully freeing up some money for some of the families  essentials. Please consider donating whatever you can afford, there is no donation that is “too small” or “too large”. Every dollar truly helps!

We have a goal of providing this form of Holiday Joy to 110 children of the Essential workers on the Texas A&M campus this holiday season. We estimate that it will take approximately $100 per child and that we will need to raise $11,000 to make this happen. Please donate what you can, if you can’t donate that is okay! You can still be involved in this effort. We just ask that you share this gofundme and help us spread some Holiday Joy this year!

How YOU can help:

- Donate! Anything helps - we’re really trying to do as much as we can for these families so give what you can!

- We have a budget of around $100 per child - the more money we raise, the more families we can help out. 

- Your donation will go straight into the project fund and will help to purchase the gifts on each family’s wishlist.

-Share and reshare this GoFundMe. It is important that we share this far and wide so that everyone in the Aggie family can participate!
