LUBBOCK, Texas — On Tuesday, the Lubbock law firm Glasheen, Valles & Inderman, LLP announced a $100,000 to food banks across the region, including the South Plains Food Bank.
According to a statement, the firm is donating $20,000 to the SPFB to help with their mission “to alleviate hunger and give hope to the hungry.”
