The American Marketing Association chapter at Texas State University-San Marcos is one of five schools recognized for community service by the American Marketing Association Foundation.
The Texas State AMA will receive a $500 community service grant in support of the Boys and Girls Club of South Central Texas’ Club Blue Program. The Texas State AMA will use the money from this community service grant to increase awareness and involvement of the Boys and Girls Club and Club Blue Program on campus and in the local San Marcos community.
The chapter will use its members’ skills and “marketing for a good cause” with the help of the AMAF Community Service Grant. Texas State AMA will sponsor a raffle in support of Boys and Girls Club of South Central Texas and Club Blue. Also, a team of students will host a college day exposure event, True Life. This event will be held at Texas State in spring 2010 and bring Boys and Girls Club students to the university to introduce them to the university environment.
