"It's an opportunity or us to give back to the community we live in. We all have a responsibility to care for one another and whatever we can do to help is what we wanna do," said Jason Stockstill, marketing representative for Dawson Geophysical.

More than 160-shooters were at Jake's Clay Friday.

Dawson Geophysical partnered with the West Texas Food Bank to hold their first annual Dawson Blast Clay Shoot.

"Even for a holiday weekend you know, we're off work, but it was an opportunity for them to share some down time with us and come out and have some fun just shooting some clays," Stockstill said.

According to Libby Campbell from the West Texas Food Bank, more than 75-thousand people will be receive meals this year.

"This donation today is really going to help us purchase more food and bring more food and fresh produce into our families here that really need it," Campbell said.

Families spread across 19 counties; equivalent to 34-thousand miles.

To help achieve the West Texas Food Bank's goal, all proceeds from the clay shoot will go towards the food bank.

"For every dollar that's donated, we're actually able to provide four meals to people in our community right here who are hungry," Campbell said.

Gary Pitts says it's a beneficial way for him and others to give back to their community.

"It also gives you a good chance to come out, like the guys we have here. It's good just to get out and get with them and shoot together so, it's something we all enjoy," Pitts said.
