FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LUBBOCK, Texas — Through Sept. 22, The United Family will once again have the opportunity to participate in the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s annual Aisles of Smile to raise money in the fight against the neuromuscular disease.
During the campaign, guests will be able to purchase qualifying products marked with Aisles of Smiles tags. A portion of the sale on these specific products will go to support MDA’s research on treatments and cure for muscular dystrophy as well as other neuromuscular diseases.
Guests may also make a monetary donation at the register of any United Supermarkets, Market Street, Albertsons Market, Amigos or United Express locations. The funds raised will go support people and families in the area where they were raised.
“We are so proud to once again offer our guests an opportunity to help others just by making their everyday purchases,” said Tony Crumpton, CMO of the United Family. “The Aisles of Smiles campaign makes a profound impact and difference for so many people. We ask our guests to be on the lookout for the tags once again.”
The MDA was started in 1950 by a group of people looking to better the lives of those who deal with the neuromuscular condition. To this day, the organization continues to pursue the promise to free families from the life-threatening effects of muscular dystrophy and other muscle-debilitating diseases.
