LUBBOCK, Texas (NEWS RELEASE) – The following is a news release from the South Plains Food Bank:
PlainsCapital Bank and the South Plains Food Bank both know a thing or two about starting from the ground up. Both began right here in Lubbock, Texas. Around 30 years ago, supporters of the South Plains Food Bank went to PlainsCapital Bank asking for a loan to start an apple orchard that would provide years of fresh fruit for our families that we serve. Since that time, PlainsCapital Bank has helped the South Plains Food Bank grow into the leading domestic hunger relief organization on the South Plains and became the first Cornerstone Partner for the organization.
PlainsCapital Bank has been a great partner for the food bank, through and through. Not only in financial donations of over $349,000, totaling 1,047,000 meals for our families, but by donating their time to making food boxes and with senior box distributions. Just recently their Lubbock area managers came out to the food bank on distribution day and enjoyed meeting the families who received the food boxes.
“I am proud of the investment that PlainsCapital Bank has been able to give to the South Plains Food Bank. We are glad that we can give back to our community financially, but also through volunteerism,” says Perry Tipton, Executive Vice President of Public Relations.
“PlainsCapital has been a longtime partner with the South Plains Food Bank,” CEO David Weaver states. “They are wonderful friends, donors, and volunteers for our organization. We are grateful they believe in our mission to end hunger and give hope on the South Plains.”
A formal annual donation by PlainsCapital Bank will be announced on Monday, May 20th at 10 a.m. at the South Plains Food Bank Apple Orchard. If there is inclement weather, the press conference will be in the lobby of the South Plains Food Bank.
