By choice, we do not receive any government funding and we are not a United Way agency. This allows us to serve the people in our community that need to be served, offer the services that are needed in our community, and keep our administrative costs as low as possible. This has worked well since 1971. Along with many other important services, we currently prepare and deliver over 850 hot lunches each weekday.
We are able to remain local and independent because the Lubbock Community is a very generous community. The people of Lubbock support us both financially and with many volunteer hours. Below are just a few of the fun and creative ways that people find to help elderly and disabled people in Lubbock remain at home, well fed, and independent.
- Local Veterinary clinics, including Live Oak Animal Hospital, Acres North Veterinary Hospital, Key Animal Clinic, and Animal Hospital of Lubbock support our Pet Program through donations of pet food and through our Pet Memorial program.
- Individual students and local area schools hold food drives and collect and package special treats around the holidays.
- Lubbock Christian University nursing and social work students focus on our mission during class projects and donate collected items.
- Service organizations like New Neighbors Lubbock, Metropolitan Lubbock Rotary, Monterey AMBUCS, and the South Plains Lions Club share portions of their annual fundraising.
- Local businesses such as United Supermarkets, Three Dog Bakery, and HEB support us with their donations.
- Local banks like Peoples Bank, FirstBank & Trust, and City Bank include us in their charitable giving.
- Social clubs including Caprock Corvette Club and host fundraisers for us.
- Two-times we have received donations from the recipients of Pay It Forward on KCBD.
These are just some of the ways that we are able to remain locally strong with a little help from our friends.
