The saying that Bryan/College Station is in a bubble is pretty true to an extent. While the rest of the country has high unemployment rates, lower retail sales, and a housing crunch, Bryan/College Station is an area that trends better than a majority of the country! I have sold more homes this year than I did last year, so I know that we aren’t hurting too bad in B/CS!
Unfortunately a lot of times we don’t realize that there are those in our community who don’t know where their next warm meal will come from, where they will sleep, or if their children will be warm enough this winter! We don’t see it a lot, but it does exist more than you could even imagine!
This year, my kids and I decided that we would like to help those who are less fortunate than the majority of us in Bryan/College Station. We have started a coat/blanket drive in Castlegate with the donations going to the Twin City Mission! What started as a small project has taken flight. My daughter and I printed out about 100 fliers and asked a few of her friends to help us pass them out in our subdivision! The kids have all gotten so into it that it has amazed me! They just light up when people ask about how to donate! Now it is on the Castlegate website and on Facebook!
It’s very simple if you want to get involved! We are taking donations at 2445 Newark Circle today from 4-6 and tomorrow 9-11 am! All you have to do is drive up to the curb and we’ll grab them from you. If that time isn’t convenient, you can call me at 979-229-0919 and we can pick them up. You can also drop them by the Century 21, Beal offices located at 404 H University Drive East at your leisure.
We have a lot to be thankful for Aggieland, so let’s get out there and make this winter a little warmer for our Brazos Valley Neighbors!
