Lubbock treasure hunt leads to big food donation

By James Clark | email  

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – Lubbock's community-wide treasure hunt ended with a huge donation to the South Plains Food Bank.  Anderson Brothers sponsored a contest on KCBD NewsChannel 11 and KCBD.com called "Finders Keepers."  For five days last week, clues would lead someone to find a grand prize for the day.  But those who brought food to the store could get gifts, and 435 such gifts were given away.

 "People all over the community had the fun," says Todd Fields, President of Anderson Brothers Jewelry.  "On top of that we were able to achieve our goal of giving food to the food bank."

Finders Keepers raised 1,500 pounds of food for the South Plains Food Bank.
