The 2014 Summer of Sharing Fun Run is now just a few days away. We are excited to see everyone on Memorial Day - May 26th - at Mackenzie Park. Please bring a non-perishable food donation for the food bank. We will collect all food donations at the start/finish line area.
Also we encourage you to come dressed as your favorite super hero as we attempt to Conquer Hunger!
Remember that the Summer of Sharing Fun Run is just the first event in this month-long food drive to restock the shelves at the South Plains Food Bank during this critical time of year. The Food Bank's shelves are typically at their lowest point during the summer months. At the same time, many children who eat lunch (and breakfast) at school during the school year need additional support during the summer.
As the Food Bank's motto goes, "Hunger doesn't take a vacation!"
Another great way anyone can help with the Summer of Sharing is to visit any Lowe's Market between Memorial Day and June 30th. Lowe's has put together bags of groceries that you can buy for $5 each. Each bag has approximately $12 worth of food in it, but you can purchase it for just $5 and then leave it right there in the store in the food bank barrels.
