Charitable people in Lubbock are taking it upon themselves to feed the hungry children and abused women of Lubbock. But they can't do it alone. Because of the recession, the government is unable to assist like it used to.
So the Covenant Health Foundation is asking small businesses and churches in the area to help these hungry people in need.
Those who pledge to help will provide food and education for children and abused women. The goal is to get these people back on their feet. Marla Bryan is a volunteer.
"They can break out of that cycle. They can become productive women instead of someone who expects someone else to care for them." She said.
Contributions will benefit Covenant Hospital, the South Plains Food Bank and Women's Protective Services.
