LUBBOCK, Texas — From July 19 to August 1, The United Family will again partner with Lubbock-area school districts to host a school supply fundraiser for local students in need.
Just like in recent years, guests are encouraged to donate at the register instead of purchasing physical school supplies for donation barrels. This process will allow guests to donate any amount at the register when purchasing groceries at any United Supermarkets, Market Street, or Amigos location.
“We are so proud to once again partner with our surrounding school districts to help raise money for school supplies,” said Sidney Hopper, president of The United Family. “While new school supplies can contribute to the excitement of a new school year, they can also be a point of financial stress for many families. The money we raise will help ensure each benefiting child is offered equal opportunity for success in the classroom this school year.”
The United Family kicked off the fundraiser by providing the superintendents from each participating school district with a gift card for $150 to get a head start on the school supplies shopping for the students in their district.
School districts benefiting from the supply drive will include Lubbock ISD, Lubbock-Cooper ISD, Frenship ISD, Roosevelt ISD, Slaton ISD, and Shallowater ISD. School district personnel will use the donated funds to purchase supplies and distribute them to their students with the greatest need.
