United Way Lubbock, Facebook

Today on Lubbock’s First News, Carolyn Simpson of United Way spoke with Tom and Laura about the upcoming event “Road To A Better South Plains,” hosted by United Way, Lubbock Housing Finance Corporation, and the City of Lubbock Community Development Department.

The event will feature a preview of the documentary A Fighting Chance: What Does It Take For a Family To Thrive and Survive In Texas?, highlighting the struggles of the working poor in the South Plains and resources that are available to them to meet living standards.

Simpson observed that the preview “shows the tough and sometimes complicated choices that they must make to meet their most basic needs.” There will also be a panel of local personnel to offer information on different kinds of needs.

The event will take place on Tuesday, October 8, from 10 am to 11 am. It will be held at the Legacy Ballroom; the address is 1500 14th street. It is free and can be registered for at
