On Tuesday and Wednesday, this week, our company participated in the Christmas toy/gift sorting event with Allen Community Outreach. We also distributed the gifts to the families on Thursday. This effort was made possible by the community of Allen, which started donating $57 $57 to Allen Community Outreach in honor of the team’s historic 57-game winning streak.

The City of Allen is turning Friday’s loss to Austin Westlake in Waco into a win for the community.

Friday’s loss in Waco was devastating, ending the team’s chance at a fourth championship in a row.

“Some teachers who work here have never experienced a loss,” said Allen ISD algebra teacher Michelle Sigle. “Many of the players have never experienced a loss on the varsity team. It’s pretty profound.”


The next day, Sigle had an idea, posting a message on Facebook saying, “I’m donating $57 to ACO in honor of the Allen Eagles and their magnificent runas a symbol of the community spirit that Allen embodies each week.”

“It’s just spread like wildfire,” said Sigle.

Since the idea was posted, more than $4,000 in donations have come in. The toys that have been donated and the Allen Community Outreach help families who are in crisis situations.

“I hope we spread our $57s all over Allen and that it grows,” said Sigle.

Allen Community Outreach also provides food and clothes for families, and emergency rent assistance.
