Public Relations Committee

The ABC Public Relations Committee supports local charities and gives back to our local communities.  Not only does this better our communities, but in doing so, they project a positive image of ABC and their members to the general public to enhance the business opportunities for merit shop contractors, suppliers and their associates.  This committee supports local charitable organizations through activities such and Food and Toy Drives and charitable donations through fund-raising events such as the annual Barbecue Cook-Off.

ABC Members are well-known for their community involvement and generosity, and the ABC Public Relations Committee made a big difference with the ABC Holiday Toy Drive this year.  Working in conjunction with the Freeport Police Department, the  inventory in Santa’s Workshop was overflowing.  The Freeport Police Department and their volunteers set up a store, complete with stockings and a gift wrap station where parents in need can shop for toys based on what they can afford to pay.  Others are offered the opportunity to exchange volunteer work  to be able to shop in the toy store for gifts.  In this way, families in need are able to buy presents for their children to have under the tree on Christmas morning.  This program lifts the spirits of all who participate.  With the recent loss of Freeport’s Junior Officer Abigail Arias, Operation Blue Santa was a blessing, cheering those who worked on the project.  The program brings happiness to children not only in Freeport, but all over Brazoria County;        something Officer Arias would be very pleased about.  Thank to ABC Members, the ABC Public Relations Committee, and to the Freeport PD Blue Santa Program for having a positive impact on our community this holiday season, and all through the year.
