LDP School Supplies Drive

The Lubbock County Democratic Party is having its annual school supplies drive. All money collected for the drive goes toward buying school supplies at bargain prices and distributing them to families in need on Saturday, August 18. Last year, over 1,000 students were given a full set of required school supplies.

You can donate securely online (via actblue) at:


Even a few bucks will buy dozens of folders, pencils, or spiral notebooks. If you’re looking for a very direct, efficient way to help area children in need, this is it.

    I think this is a great idea. I wish more people would do this… I work with young children and its always nice when they can go to school with something ‘new’. Far too often some of the least among us do not get new things for school and it is heartbreaking. Way to go LPD for doing something for our Lubbock kids. Where will the give away take place and how are they getting the word out?

    I believe that the giveaway will take place at Democratic Party HQ, which is at 74th and Elgin right behind the Science Spectrum and Furr’s. I’m not sure of the date — it may be Monday the 20th.

    The word will be spread by a press release and via some of the local radio stations.
