Community Impact

Since its inception in 2007,

the APLA has dedicated significant time and resources to serving the local community. In addition to countless volunteer hours at Central Texas Food Bank, we have donated over $400,000 to charity, including: $330,000+ (Central Texas Food Bank), $45,000+ (Caring for Camo), $13,000+ Toys for Tots, and $25k+ Operation Home Now.
