In Lubbock, one out of every 5.1 residents lives in poverty. Los Hermanos Familia recognizes the growing poverty rate - in the state of Texas -16 %, and in Lubbock - 19.8%, indicating that Lubbock has a higher than average percentage of residents below the poverty line when compared to the rest of Texas.
Our committee recalled those moments of need in their own lives and came up with the “7 Point Warm Check” – The head – knit hats; the ears – earmuffs; the neck -a scarf; the hands – gloves; body- a jacket; feet – socks and warm shoes. A few discussed being hungry, and some going without during the holidays. Each identified as needing one or all and the impression it left on them.
As such, Los Hermanos Familia with its community partners and volunteers annually will identify areas of needs and offer hope and a warm heart by answering the call. Whether it’s giving coats or providing warm gloves and beanies; providing warm blankets; or a full holiday meal including a turkey – Los Hermanos Families wants to give needy children, especially teens, warmth, and families hope and comfort. Your gift will allow Los Hermanos Familia to warm the hearts of many and give with no condition.
Will you help us warm some hearts? Donate scarf/hat/glove sets, warm socks, blankets, or sweatshirts. Or, consider making a monetary donation.
