Healthy Snack Drive

The Larry Combest Community Health and Wellness Center will hold their Annual Fall Festival Truck'n Treat on October 24th, but this year they are promoting a healthy twist on the event. The Combest, partnered with Harwell Elementary, is providing healthy snack options in place of sugary candies to help establish healthy habits, which is especially crucial during the Halloween and Holiday seasons.

To reach their goal, they are holding a Health Snack Drive through October 23rd. Donations are accepted at the Marketing & Outreach Office Room 113. See the flyer below for additional information such as suggested snacks to bring.

How else can you help the Combest with this effort?

· Volunteer to help give out snacks
· Volunteer to use our vehicle

The Fall Festival Trunk'n Treat will be held on October 24th from 6 p.m. - 8p.m. at the black top playground behind Harwell Elementary School, located at 4104 Ave D, Lubbock, TX.

If you are able to help the Combest in any of the EFFORTS above or have any questions, please contact Your support is greatly appreciated!
