Every year, members of Lubbock Caprock AMBUCS donates a percentage of our funds to local charities that help people with disabilities or have a long-standing relationship with our organization. Below are a few examples of some of the local charities that we support.
Challenger Little League
Challenger Little League is a local baseball organization that provides an opportunity for children with disabilities to play baseball. The non-profit started in 1991 by a small group of volunteers and parents. After a tough first season, the three local AMBUCS clubs were asked to help. Working "Shoulders Together", AMBUCS and Challenger volunteers modified the baseball diamond to allow more disabled children to play ball. Currently, over 150 players enjoy playing on a ball field that has a synthetic infield that allows children of all abilities to enjoy the game of baseball. Several members of AMBUCS enjoy officiating games where homeruns are more plentiful than outs.
Texas Boys Ranch
Over 40 years ago, concerned citizens of Lubbock wanted to make a difference in the lives of homeless, neglected and dependent boys of the South Plains. In 1975, land was donated to start a ranch and one year later, Lubbock Caprock AMBUCS built a vocational training building. Since then, AMBUCS has financially supported the Boys Ranch during the annual telethon and for special fundraisers including the new basketball gym. Texas Boys Ranch operates a working ranch on 460 acres where the boys can learn valuable lessons while being part of a loving family. The mission statement is "Sharing Jesus, Healing Hearts, Transforming Lives...".
