During the Red Raiders men's basketball game against Abilene Christian on Wednesday December 9th it's officially Jarrett Culver Night in order to benefit the South Plains Food Bank with prizes available and video messages from Culver himself.

Those in attendance at the game will also have a chance to win a mini-basketball signed by NBA star and former Red Raider and Coronado Mustang Jarrett Culver.

No, Culver won't be there in person, but the NBA has already started training for the upcoming season, but the Culver family will attend. You can donate through the South Plains Food Bank "Text-to-Give" campaign and the Culver Foundation will match the donation, up to $10,000.

“I am so honored to partner with United Supermarkets; they are a pillar in our community and hold a place close to my heart,” Culver said in a press release “Together with the Culver Foundation we hope to encourage and inspire our great city of Lubbock to come together and help those in need with the U Can Share food drive. Lubbock is my home and where my roots run deep, and we all have the ability to make a difference in our community. I can’t wait to see this program kick-off, and celebrate all the good we can do together this holiday season.”

To make a donation text SPFB to 243725. Each donation is considered a raffle ticket and will be entered for a chance to win a game-worn Jarrett Culver Minnesota Timberwolves jersey and a personalized video.

“We are very excited to be part of the text-to-give opportunity and even more excited to have the generosity of Jarrett Culver and the Culver Foundation match the funds raised, up to $10,000,” said Dina Jeffries, chief executive officer of the South Plains Food Bank. “This shows the long tradition Lubbockites and West Texans have in helping their neighbor. All donations given stay local and go directly into our programming to stamp out hunger and end food insecurities on the South Plains.”
