They will host a free virtual event this weekend.

A group of Texas Tech University students in the Department of Community, Family & Addiction Sciences is stepping up to help raise awareness of a local nonprofit organization and its important work to support families.

Buckner Family Pathways, a faith-based group that specializes in assisting families in need, will present a student-led virtual event at 9:30 a.m. Saturday (July 18) to provide an in-depth look at how the nonprofit program supports single-parent families and how Lubbock residents can enroll or help support it. Along the way, the Texas Tech students will learn how to help facilitate the city-wide community event.

The event is open to anyone who could benefit from these programs or is interested in becoming a volunteer. It can be accessed here: https://zoom.us/j/98736522371
