MEDIA ADVISORY: The United Family kicks off School Supply Drive scan tag fundraiser for local students in need

LUBBOCK, Texas — The United Family will kick off the annual School Supply Drive scan tag fundraiser on July 22 at 9:00 a.m. at the Market Street on 98th Street and Quaker Avenue.

To start the fundraiser, superintendents from Lubbock-area school districts will gather to shop for the initial donated supplies.

Just like in 2020, guests will be encouraged to donate at the register instead of purchasing school supplies for donation barrels. This will allow guests to make a monetary donation of any amount at the register when purchasing their groceries.

School districts benefiting from the supply drive will include Lubbock ISD, Lubbock-Cooper ISD, Frenship ISD, Roosevelt ISD, Slaton ISD and Shallowater ISD. Guests will be able to make donations at any United Supermarkets, Market Street or Amigos location in Lubbock or Slaton. Each school receiving donations will directly distribute them to families in need.
