PlainsCapital Bank Makes Five-Year Commitment to South Plains Food Bank

South Plains Food Bank today announced that PlainsCapital Bank has made a five-year commitment to the food bank totaling $125,000. The contribution will be used to support the South Plains Food Bank organization in its goal of alleviating hunger and partnership in programs including Ending Hunger, Summer of Sharing, Harvest of Hope Luncheon and U Can Share Food Drive.

“PlainsCapital Bank is a wonderful friend of South Plains Food Bank, and over the years they have stood beside us as we have responded to the changing face of hunger,” said David Weaver, CEO of South Plains Food Bank. “As a result of the economic downturn in 2008, South Plains Food Bank and our agencies now touch the lives of one in five people in the South Plains area. Our five-year partnership with PlainsCapital ensures we will have food and resources to help seniors in rural communities, to provide healthy meals to children after school and to provide a different vision of the future for at-risk young people.”

PlainsCapital Bank has been a supporter of South Plains Food Bank for more than 20 years, hosting food drives, providing monetary donations and serving as a “Sponsor of the Day.”

“We are proud to support South Plains Food Bank and their efforts to provide food to those in need throughout West Texas,” said John Owens, West Texas region chairman of PlainsCapital Bank. “We look forward to partnering with the food bank on important initiatives to alleviate hunger and provide help to families in our community.”
