LUBBOCK, Texas - The Texas Tech soccer program continued its tradition of strong community service Thursday night as members of the team assisted in the 2012 Parade of Homes across the city of Lubbock.
Several members of the Red Raider soccer team scattered throughout the community and assisted families with touring 16 homes across three developments in Lubbock.
A portion of the proceeds from the 2012 Parade of Homes benefited the Lubbock Homes for Heroes Project, an organization with which the Texas Tech Athletics Department partnered with during the 2011-2012 academic year.
The Lubbock Homes For Heroes Project has helped to build homes for two local veterans. This year, the West Texas Home Builders Association in partnership with the Texas Tech Athletics Department constructed a home for Louis Flore as an extension of the Wounded Warrior Project.
Flores was honored on the field at Jones AT&T Stadium prior of the kickoff of the Oklahoma State game on Nov. 12.
