LPD Homeless Outreach teams up with 3 Doors Down charity

Posted: Updated:

"The Better Life", a charity by rock band 3 Doors Down, teams up with LPD's Homeless Outreach Team and the House of Furniture to collect supplies for the homeless starting today through the end of the month. 

A donation with a value of $15 enters you in a contest to win a trip to see the band in Cherokee, North Carolina. 

House of Furniture among other sponsors donated $5,000 to kick start the initiative. 

"Three Doors Down Better Life Foundation is one of the top five rock n' roll foundations in the world," said Spokesman Jordan Sanders with the House of Furniture. "They help all over the place. They help with Toys for Tots and they reached out to our Lubbock Police Department to help raise money to help these people." 

LPD Sergeant Steven Bergen said working with H.O.T. and the foundation has been a humbling experience.

"When we started we had a sizable donation, but besides that this is one of the largest ones we've had," Bergen said.
