Numbers for the U Can Share Food Drive are in, and they prove you helped surpass the goals. The drive raised more than 450,000 pounds of canned goods, which far exceeded the 400,000 pound goal. U Can Share also had a goal of $50,000, but the money collected now stands at $95,000. The South Plains Food Bank will begin distributing its holiday food baskets on December 21st.

Santa delivered two big gifts to the Lubbock Area Foundation on Monday. The money comes from the families of Mr. and Mrs. J.D. Leftwich and Dr. Ruth Wright. The Lubbock Area Foundation is a collection of endowments given by many different donors for charities on the South Plains. J.D. Leftwich was a former director of Lubbock National Bank and was also a member of the board of directors right here at NewsChannel 11. Dr. Wright was a political science professor at Texas Tech for nearly 30 years.

Santa's visits didn't stop there. He also went to the Garrison Geriatric Education and Care Center at 3710 4th St., and Saint Nick is making this trip a two day affair. Tuesday he will visit residents at the Sherick Home at 2502 Utica Ave.

The Museum of Texas Tech is inviting you to come in for a hug. This "hug" is actually what they call a collection of teddy bears. The museum is holding its annual Teddy Bear Picnic Reunion. It's displaying 135 bears belonging to notable people in Lubbock. Among them, Tech President David Schmidly's teddy bear. His and other bears are on display through January 5th. By the way, this year is the 100th anniversary of the teddy bear.
