LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Monday morning kicks off the start of the 38th annual U Can Share Drive to benefit the South Plains Food Bank but this year like most things we are doing it a little differently. We are asking the community to donate but not with food with funds.
There are many ways you can still make an impact this year. Monday, December 7 through Saturday, December 12, you can make a difference in our community by donating through the Virtual Food Drive, or bidding on the silent auction items. Hunger Heroes, Assemble! Make your donation today at https://www.spfb.org/ucanshare2020/.
This community-wide effort began as a service project at KCBD NewsChannel 11 and has spread to feed thousands of people across the South Plains.
Each year, schools, churches, and community members contribute food and funds for the largest food drive on the South Plains.
With more families in need than ever before, the SPFB has an even bigger goal set for 2020.
From December 7 to December 12, the South Plains Food Bank hopes to raise $250,000 which provides 750,000 nourishing meals to families and individuals across the South Plains.
KCBD will be live to cover U Can Share 2020 Monday through Saturday at the United at 82nd and Frankford but we are asking the public to please watch from the warmth of your home.
The more funds raised, the more Christmas boxes the SPFB can make for the holidays.
Through partnerships with United Supermarkets and Prosperity Bank, it is easy to get involved this year. The following ways to donate include:
- Donate online at https://www.spfb.org/ucanshare2020/
- Check-Out Hunger at all United Supermarkets locations (Market Street, United, Amigos)
- Prosperity Bank: Take any monetary donations or drop change by any Prosperity Bank location
- Various Fund Drives throughout the city and in our schools
SPFB will not be accepting food donations of any kind at this year’s U Can Share Food Drive based on the recommendations of Feeding America and Feeding Texas. Instead, you can donate via one of the many Virtual Food Drives hosted by community organizations.
