Volunteer season is underway at the South Plains Food Bank. More than 100 students from different organizations at Texas Tech kicked off the first work day of 2009 at the food bank where they sorted and prepared the donations for distribution.
"We are marking the barcodes on the cans, so I guess they don't resell them back, and just boxing them up. We've done a bout, well, a lot today," said volunteer Swanna Carillo.
Saturday was just one of several opportunities to help out and volunteer at the food bank. If you'd like to help, call the volunteer coordinator at 763-3003.
