Bank offers free Citibus pass in exchange for food bank donation

From PlainsCapital Bank:

LUBBOCK, TX – PlainsCapital Bank will offer a FREE Citibus one-day pass to riders who make a food donation to South Plains Food Bank on Friday, August 10. To redeem the free one-day pass, riders are asked to donate three nonperishable food items upon boarding any Lubbock Citibus. 

This offer to receive a free one-day bus pass is part of PlainsCapital Bank's "Feed the Bus" food drive to give back to the Lubbock community through donations to the South Plains Food Bank. Nonperishable food items include canned goods, cereals, rice, beans or any other prepackaged food items. All food drive collections will be donated to South Plains Food Bank.

"South Plains Food Bank truly appreciates the partnership with PlainsCapital Bank and their commitment to our local community," said South Plains Food Bank CEO David Weaver. "August and September are low-inventory months and we appreciate any opportunity that allows us to continue helping the community we care so much about."

In addition to collecting food donations from Citibus riders, PlainsCapital Bank will host a "Feed the Bus" kick-off food drive on Saturday, August 11 at United Supermarket located at 8010 Frankford in Lubbock. The "Ride with the Good Guys" bus will be at United Supermarket from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. with representatives from PlainsCapital Bank and South Plains Food Bank accepting nonperishable food donations or $1 contributions. In appreciation of food drive donations, PlainsCapital Bank will offer a hotdog, chips and a drink to individuals who contribute to this cause.
