The AGS Cares Program made more than $140,000 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.

According to a press release, the donations included $34,409 in cash and $106,875 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 nearly half way there,” 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 $100,000 in cash and $250,000 in in-kind contributions since the 2012 inception of the AGS Cares Program.

Donation recipients during the past six months included: Feherty’s Troops First Foundation; St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital; Wounded Warrior; IMAHelps; Joel Osteen Ministries; KOA Care Camps; Operation Kindness; and Samaritan’s Purse.

AGS has also made one-time donations to various other charities recommended by the company’s clients.

Based in Crowley, Texas, AGS publishes over two million guest guides (site maps) annually in the U.S. and Canada using environmentally friendly recycled paper and soy-based ink. Texas Advertising Company Inc. acquired AGS from Good Sam Enterprises LLC in 2011. For more information about AGS, visit its website at www.agspub.com
