A local printing company has designed yard signs to help spread encouragement as our area continues to deal with COVID-19.
The Slate Group is working to spread goodwill through the community with the Signs of Hope project. Company representatives say they wanted to come up with a way to involve Lubbock in an effort to bring positivity to our area, while helping local businesses to stay in front of their customers in a non-obtrusive way.
"There's a lot of folks in our community that this is really hard on," said Amanda McAfee with the Lubbock Area United Way. "People who have lost jobs or lost wages. People that have never had to ask for help before that are now asking for help.
"So a message of hope, a message of there are folks out there that care and that want to do good, I think we could all use that."
Slate Group has placed signs in front of its building at 6024 45th Street that are free for the public to take. It has also invited other companies to join them by buying signs and making them available for their customers.
The Slate Group is donating 10% of the proceeds to the South Plains COVID-19 Relief Fund.
