Signs of Hope project supports South Plains neighbors in need

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

From the Lubbock Area United Way:


Local printing company Slate Group is working to spread goodwill through the community with their Signs of Hope project. The company has designed and printed yard signs to help spread encouragement as South Plains residents continue to deal with the effects of the COVID-19 crisis.


Trey Laverty with Slate Group said, “Things are changing constantly right now, bringing a lot of uncertainty to not only Lubbock, but the world. We wanted to come up with a way to involve the community in an effort to bring positivity to our area, while also helping local businesses to stay in front of their customers in a non-obtrusive way. We thought we could help uplift people by doing what we do best... printing.”


The company has placed a limited number of signs in front of their building that are free for the public to take. They are also inviting other companies to join them by purchasing signs and making them available for their customers. Slate Group is donating 10% of the proceeds to the South Plains COVID-19 Relief Fund.


To find out about how to purchase signs for your company, please contact Trey Laverty at 806.794.7752. Current Slate Group customers may contact their account executive.
