A Unique Salvation Army Fundraiser Raises Money in Lubbock

Today, Salvation Army of Lubbock supporter Carl Tepper, and his horse Seaford, spent a few hours at the Hitching Post of the United Market Street at 98th and Quaker to raise money for the Salvation Army.

Tepper said there was a good response to his special fundraising effort, “We’ve had a really good day with the buckets (Red Kettles) today, and we had some great attention from the media which helped too.”

Seaford the horse was a big hit with kids, but Tepper says your donations are still needed for the Christmas Season, “We’re very short for the Angel Tree program, this year it’s beyond adopting a child for Christmas.  This year we’re going to be able to give gift cards with the money we raise from the Red Kettles.  We’re hoping we can raise enough to give to every child so they won’t go without a Christmas.”

Chris Winn, Lubbock County Republican Party Chairman, was at Market Street to support Tepper’s fundraising effort, “I think this is a great thing that Carl’s doing, and he’s seen a lot of people stop by today. I hope the Salvation Army can hit its fundraising goals.”

The Salvation Army Red Kettles are located at retail outlets throughout Lubbock and the South Plains.  You can also donate with a credit card at the KFYO Red Kettle location at Sam’s Club on the Marsha Sharp Freeway in Lubbock.
