LUBBOCK, Texas (NEWS RELEASE) - Nonprofit Buckner International is celebrating the start of fall with a Trunk or Treat Fall Festival for the Lubbock community. The Trunk or Treat Festival offers a safe, inclusive, and enjoyable way for neighbors to come together and provides a safer alternative to traditional door-to-door trick-or-treating. The event is designed to also strengthen sense of community, promote creativity, engagement, and positive values.

Volunteers, attendees, and sponsors will be encouraged to bring shoes and socks to donate as part of their ongoing shoe drive. All collected donations will then be transported to the Buckner Center for Humanitarian Aid to be sorted and shipped.  All donated shoes and socks for children and teens must be brand new and closed toed. Cash donations are also accepted and will help provide new shoes as well as cover distribution costs.

In addition, the event will raise awareness for the resources Buckner provides to the community.
