The AGS Cares Program made more than $155,000 in cash and in-kind donations during the first six months of this year to various charities that work to improve the lives of children, veterans, impoverished people and animals, both here and overseas.
The donations included $39,538 in cash and $116,460 in-kind contributions, mainly donated advertising space in guest guides designed by AGS.
“Our goal was $250,000 cash and in-kind donations for the year, so we are well ahead of our goal,” said AGS President Brian Schaeffer, adding, “The Good Lord continues to bless our business and there isn’t a day that goes by that we aren’t grateful.”
AGS has donated more than $180,000 in cash and $350,000 in in-kind contributions since the 2012 inception of the AGS Cares Program.
Donation recipients during the past six months included KOA Care Camps, among others. A non-profit charity of the KOA Owners Association, KOA Care Camps sends kids with cancer to special camps where they can enjoy camping and recreational experiences at no charge to their families. Created in 1984, the program has grown to support 52 KOA Care Camps across the country.
