LUBBOCK, Texas -

Texas Tech physicians are ringing in Christmas cheer for three non profits providing some much needed items during the summer months. 

"We shifted from the holiday time to July," said Matt Driskill, Texas Tech Physicians, Surgery Administrator. "We know they have needs during this time, but also we felt like our staff would have a little more excess income in the summer opposed to the holiday time, so we moved to Christmas in July." 

This year Texas Tech Physicians hosted a Christmas in July drive to collect a variety of items to help Children's Home of Lubbock, The Ronald McDonald House of the South Plains, and Women's Protective Services.

"Women Protective Services said we really kids clothes, baby clothes, school supplies. Ronald McDonald House said we have a really big need for paper products and kitchen supplies, and cleaning supplies because we have a lot of folks who are coming through and we need that sort of thing," said Driskill. "The Children's Home of Lubbock said you know when we have kiddos that are placed which is their goal to get them placed into homes they like to send the bedding that they have so that they have something of familiarity and comfort with them, so we are always turning those over and so they wanted bedding and comforters." 

Texas Tech Physicians were able to raise about $6,000 in donations and cash, they hope this partnership can continue in the future and encourage others to donate.
