ProAg and its employees are committed to making a difference in the communities where they live and work. One example of this can be seen in the Southern Region – Amarillo Office where office staff recently distributed Blessing Bags for the Homeless in the Amarillo, TX community.

  • Food items 
  • Water bottles
  • Books and newspapers
  • Rain ponchos
  • Knit hats and scarves
  • Socks
  • Blankets

The initial Blessing Bags have been distributed and the remaining bags will be distributed in the near future. The Southern Region – Amarillo Office plans on making this a year-round project with distributions three to four times a year. 

Christmas is not as much about opening our presents as opening our hearts. – J L W Brooks

According to participants in this service project, “Our hearts were opened, warmed and filled with love for those we didn’t know. We were humbled and emotionally moved with thankfulness for our blessings which we take for granted each day. We don’t live in a home consisting of a cardboard floor and a garbage bag for a roof. We eat when we are hungry, not just when someone is gracious enough to share.  Above all we are thankful for the love and support from our family and friends. We cannot imagine the hardship people endure day in and day out in these situations.” 

In the final words of the project participants, “May we not forget what we saw and experienced today.”
