Goodie Bags

We will have 75 goodie bags available in April for pick up at a date and location to be determined.

For our new Aggie moms, we offer goodie bags for sale each semester right before finals. Normally, they are available to be picked up at the MSC by your Aggie. Aggie Moms clubs from all over Texas reserve space at the MSC for this fun tradition, but due to COVID, we will have an alternate plan again this spring.

The bags will be $20 each with a limit of four per mom. Keep posted on the contents of our spring bag. Also, if you have suggestions for an item(s) to include this semester, OR if your place of business has something to donate or for us to purchase, please let us know. We love making these bags special for our Aggies, so all feedback is greatly appreciated.

Email us at CCAMGoodieBags@aggienetwork.com.

Thanks and Gig 'Em!
