It's that time of year again! Aggies CAN is approaching, the largest student-athlete run canned food drive in the nation held right here in Aggieland by your Aggie Athletes.
With last year’s success of raising more than $24,000 and more than 4,000 pounds of canned goods, our contributions helped the Brazos Valley Food Bank get through their toughest times. We are raising the bar this year and believe that as a community we can raise $50,000 and 10,000 pounds of canned goods to support - not only the Brazos Valley Food Bank - but a new on-campus food bank that will serve as an additional source of support for the common mission of eradicating hunger in the Brazos Valley.
In an effort to make more of an impact, Whataburger is the proud sponsor of this year’s Aggies CAN. Look for us in our lime green on October 19 at the Soccer and Volleyball games, as well as Midnight Yell, and then on October 20th when we BTHO LSU. We will be collecting monetary and canned food donations.
- Bring a can; get in free to the Soccer and Volleyball games.
- The first 20,000 people to give a monetary donation of at least $1 or donate two canned good items at the football game on Oct 20th will receive a free Whataburger coupon.
"A dollar today keeps the Hunger away"
Aggies Can History: Aggies Can started in the year 2000 with a handful of Student-Athletes wanting to give back to the community that gave so much to them.
It started out as an idea to collect canned food at one football game; it has now turned into the largest Student-Athlete run canned food drive in the Nation. All taking place on the A&M campus at three Aggie Athletic events: Soccer, Volleyball, and Football. Aggies Can is a solely Student-Athlete Volunteer and run canned food drive focused on giving back and impacting the Brazos Valley.
