The Chuck Wagon Community Fund is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit, committed to improving the community of Odessa, TX and the Permian Basin. We are dedicated but not limited to helping all Veterans by joining together with other non-profit organizations that support our men and women who serve and protect the United States of America. We also assist other non-profit organizations, first responders, special causes, individual needs, disaster relief and scholarships to promote Odessa, TX and the State of Texas with the Spirit of West Texas.
The Odesssa Chuck Wagon Gang has been serving as Ambassadors to Odessa, TX for over 75 years. The GANG started out in 1940 representing the hard working, generous spirit of the oil centered community by feeding masses of people famous Texas BBQ cooked with their own West Texas flavor. The GANG has fed folks not only in the State of Texas but all over the U.S. and International communities to include Mexico, Canada and Sweden to name a few. The focus was on representing Odessa, TX abroad with its 501(c)(6) non-profit status of local volunteers. However the GANG is looking to make a larger impact on the community at-large by expanding outreach that doesn't necessarily involve GANG feeds. Therefore, Chuck Wagon Community Fund was created as a separate entity with a new vision that can work together with the Chuck Wagon Gang.
