A Helping Hand from Hilltop Holdings at Hunger Busters
DALLAS, TX (Nov. 19, 2019) – The parent company of PlainsCapital Bank, Hilltop Holdings, recently sent 100 employees to volunteer at Hunger Busters, a Dallas-based charity focused on feeding kids and fueling futures. Annually, Hunger Busters provides over 350,000 meals to 11 Dallas Independent School District (DISD) schools and six after school programs. With the help of volunteers like Hilltop Holdings employees, Hunger Busters is able to fight the epidemic of Dallas’ childhood hunger problem.
The three two-hour shifts the employees worked translates to 200 work hours and $2,000 wages saved by Hunger Busters. Employees produced 5,721 total sandwiches and assembled 1,824 meals for students. These meals will be delivered to DISD schools to provide a much-needed third meal of the day to food insecure students.
This effort is a prime example of how the Hilltop family of companies, including PlainsCapital Bank, strive to serve the communities in which we do business. It is an inherent part of our culture. Since the Bank’s founding in 1988, employees have maintained a rich history of supporting our communities through a combination of executive leadership, employee engagement, volunteerism, sponsorships, and giving. Collectively, PlainsCapital supports hundreds of organizations and causes throughout the state seeking to strengthen our communities’ families, support local economic growth, and enhance educational opportunities.
