Purple Up! for Military Kids April 15

April is the month of the Military Child, providing an opportunity to recognize and honor the service of our youngest heroes, military children. Help us turn Aledo ISD PURPLE on April 15 as we Purple Up! for Military Kids! Wearing purple is a very visible way to show support and thank military youth for their strength and sacrifices. Purple symbolizes all branches of the military, as it is the combination of Army green, Marine red, Coast Guard, Navy and Air Force blue. Be creative….the goal is for military youth to see they have our thanks and support!

AdvoCats Run, Walk, Crawl Race
This is our only major fundraiser.  The funds raised at this event will help ensure that AdvoCats can continue to provide support for the needs of the children in our community.
Over the past year, the AdvoCats have spent more than $36,000 helping approximately 400 students in the Aledo Schools. With AdvoCats’ assistance, over 100 students were able to attend field trips and programs at a cost of approximately $7,000 and almost 200 students’ school supplies were provided at a cost over $10,000 .  Over $5,000 was spent to allow 18 seniors to participate in their senior activities. These students were able to receive senior rings, yearbooks and senior ads, prom tickets and clothing, senior pictures, invitations as well as caps and gowns. Many students were helped with medical and dental requests. We were able to help over 60 families who struggled to make ends meet because of the loss of a job, loss of a home, or other difficult situation. AdvoCats’ provided approximately $14,000 to help families in our community with food, utilities, and other needs.
