A LITTLE ABOUT AGGIES CAN
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.
