Provided by Salvation Army of Lubbock

Liggett Law Group, a personal‐injury law firm, based in Lubbock, Texas, is partnering with The Salvation Army of Lubbock for the "Holidays For The Homeless" Facebook promotion.

Throughout the month of December, Liggett Law Group will raise money for The Salvation Army's Emergency Shelter through their Facebook page. Every weekday a question will be posted on the Facebook page and fan interaction will directly influence how much money Liggett Law Group will give to those without a home in the Hub City. Every time someone likes a status update posted on the page, Liggett Law Group will donate $1. Every time someone uploads a photo, Liggett Law Group will donate $2 and every time someone shares an update with his or her friends, Liggett Law Group will donate $3, for a maximum contribution of up to $1,000. The promotion began on Dec. 1 and will run through Dec. 20. The Facebook page can be found at

"This year we are in great need for the community's support to help us help those who are in desperate need," says Major Mike Morton, Corps Officer for The Salvation Army in Lubbock. "With uncertainty over the economy and increasing job losses, we are thankful to our generous donors who make it possible for us to meet the ever‐growing needs of our community." The Salvation Army uses the funding raised at Christmas to help serve individuals year‐round as well as during the holidays. The Red Kettle goal this year is $250,000 and will help to provide Christmas toys for 4,320 children and food boxes to 2,125 families in need right here in Lubbock.  The Salvation Army, an evangelical part of the universal Christian church established in London in 1865, has been supporting those in need in His name without discrimination for 130 years in the United States. Nearly 30 million Americans receive assistance from The Salvation Army each year through the broadest array of social services that range from providing food for the hungry, relief for disaster victims, assistance for the disabled, outreach to the elderly and ill, clothing and shelter to the homeless and opportunities for underprivileged children. 82 cents of every dollar spent is used to support those services in 5,000 communities nationwide.
