Goal is 125,000 pounded, $25,000 cash donations
The South Plains Food Bank has announced the formal opening of its annual Summer of Sharing Food Drive with a goal of raising 125,000 pounds of food and $25,000 in cash donations.
David Weaver, chief executive officer, said at a Thursday news conference the drive comes at a crucial time for the food bank.
“This drive comes at a really critical time for us. At this time of year our inventory begins to run low, so Summer of Sharing Food Drive has been critical to making sure that we have the food resources that we need to take care of people during the summer,” he said.
