“We were aiming to collect 7,500 pounds during the drive, but we ended up with almost four times that amount,” said Shelby Crews, community relations manager for United. “We are so grateful for the generosity of all the community volunteers and Texas Tech students who helped make this food drive a huge success.”

Texas Tech athletic coaches, including head football coach Kliff Kingsbury, Raider Red, the Masked Rider and other local celebrities made special appearances throughout the drive. The drive ran for 30 hours in recognition of the South Plains Food Bank’s 30th anniversary, which it celebrated this year.

“South Plains Food Bank provides not only food, but also hope for families in need in West Texas,” added Crews. “The food bank is so important to our community and we are honored to partner with them for another successful food drive.”
