LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Ahead of Spring Break, UMC Health System and UMC EMS delivered bags of food to Lubbock ISD's Brown Elementary Thursday to ensure those students have the food needed during the week away from school.

Ninety shopping bags full of food donated by UMC employees were taken to students. The employees collected around $1350 for the food.

UMC Senior Associate General Counsel and Public Information Act Officer Kristi Ward coordinates the Partners in Education program that allows for the partnership between UMC and Brown Elementary. Past donations to the school have included food, school supplies, clothing and a Christmas Tree.

The hospital says this is the seventh year it has donated food for the students who rely on the school cafeteria programs for adequate nutrition.

"UMC's motto is 'Service is Our Passion,' and we think that extends beyond patient care," said Kristi Ward, UMC Senior Associate General Counsel and Public Information Act Officer. "We're a part of this community. It's important for us to be able to reach out and help."
