Support Our First Responders Campaign

Press Release

June 19, 2020

The Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) is pleased to announce our Support Our First Responders Campaign to be held July 3rd thru July 6th, 2020.

This Campaign is designed to solicit donations of Bottle Water, PowerAde, Gatorade and/or Monetary Donations to purchase said items, for distribution to First Responders throughout the South Plains Region.

We are seeking support from citizens and community partners to help meet this unmet need this year as the usual yearly donations from our Volunteer Organizations Active in Disasters has been curtailed by Covid-19 response issues.

We request Businesses, Organizations and/or private citizens with the ability to assist in this campaign, be prepared to donate at a designated donation site, to be announced by your local Office of Emergency Management.

We are also encouraging Faith Based Organizations to consider collecting donations over the 4th of July weekend and coordinate with your local Office of Emergency Management for pickup and distribution.

For questions related to this campaign and for drop-off locations, please contact your local Office of Emergency Management.

Lubbock County Office of Emergency Management can be contacted at
