LUBBOCK, Texas -

From the Lubbock Area United Way:

In an unprecedented act of generosity, leaders from 20 Lubbock banks have come together to contribute $343,000 to the South Plains COVID-19 Response Fund.

"We knew from the beginning, the collective vision of the bank leaders was to show Lubbock and the entire South Plains area that Lubbock has a strong, vibrant banking community that cares deeply for the people and businesses they serve," Glenn Cochran, CEO of Lubbock Area United Way, said.

The South Plains COVID-19 Response Fund was created in partnership by the Community Foundation of West Texas and Lubbock Area United Way to rapidly deploy resources to community-based organizations tackling the effects of the coronavirus outbreak in the region.

Early contribution numbers from the banking community were reported last week, and since that time additional Lubbock banks have come forward with commitments to support the cause.

"In a time when it's rare for the public to see any sort of unity at the national level, we have a unique opportunity to show our community that we are better and stronger than that," Steve Warren, President of the Community Foundation of West Texas, said. "Our local banks have shown us that it is possible to work together for the common good of our citizens.We truly are all in this together, and we are grateful for the leadership the banking community has shown."
