PlainsCapital Bank in Lubbock Donates Christmas Gifts for More Than 600 Students at Alderson Elementary

On Friday, December 20, PlainsCapital Bank employees in Lubbock delivered more than 600 Christmas gifts to pre-K through fifth-grade students at Alderson Elementary School. PlainsCapital partnered with Bank customers McDougal Companies and Parkhill, Smith & Cooper to ensure no child at Alderson Elementary went without a gift during the holiday season.

PlainsCapital Bank in Lubbock has participated in this gift donation event for 20 years, although this was their first year partnering with Alderson Elementary. Their previous adopted school, Bozeman Elementary, closed last summer and transferred all students to Alderson Elementary.

“PlainsCapital Bank employees look forward to this event every year,” said Bob Tate, manager of safekeeping at PlainsCapital Bank in Lubbock. “Even though Bozeman Elementary is no longer open, we wanted to continue our tradition of making Christmas a little brighter for children in the community who might otherwise go without gifts during the holidays.”
