(Press Release)

West Texas Chevy Dealers has agreed to take action against hunger this month by matching every dollar donated to the South Plains Food Bank, up to $50,000. Until September 30th , six meals will be given to a family in need for every $1 donated.

Across the South Plains, more than 96,000 people struggle with hunger. More than 26,000 are children. West Texas Chevy Dealers is giving the community a chance to let their dollar do twice the work and give hope to those who need it most.

“It’s incredible,” David Weaver, CEO of the South Plains Food Bank said. “We can already stretch one dollar to provide three meals for our families, but now, the food bank is getting a little assistance to stretch it even further. We are beyond grateful to West Texas Chevy Dealers for allowing us this opportunity.”

September is already a special month for the SPFB with it being Hunger Action Month. The food bank is hoping to raise awareness of the hunger epidemic across the South Plains and encouraging the community and organizations to take action to make a difference.

To celebrate Hunger Action Day, September 13th, any donation made during those 24 hours will be tripled. On that day, every $30 will provide 90 meals for the families served by the SPFB.

“This is such a great start to Hunger Action Month,” Macy Lopez, Marketing and Communications Manager of the South Plains Food Bank said. “Allowing the community to double their impact is amazing. We also want to encourage everyone to take action by volunteering, advocating, or learning more about the food bank,” Lopez said. “Our social media pages will be filled with information on simple ways to just get the conversation going. We encourage everyone to get involved and ‘go orange’ this month.”
