UMC donates food to elementary students, families

Posted: Updated:

Students at Brown Elementary in Central Lubbock received a special donation from UMC on Wednesday.

Employees at UMC donated food for the students to have over the holiday break as part of the Partners in Education program with Lubbock ISD.

Employees collected enough extra food to provide food bags to students at Bean and Jackson elementaries as well.

Staci Sumners, the principal at Brown Elementary, said families are always very appreciative for the extra help.

"A lot of times students won't have the food they need to make it through the two week break they have at Christmas, and sometimes the only meal they have is what they have here at school," Sumners said.

UMC also provides food bags for students during Spring break.
