United Supermarkets and Market Street kick off School Supply Drive with United Way

ABILENE, Texas — On Wednesday, United Supermarkets and Market Street launched the annual K-Ready Kids School Supply Drive fundraiser in partnership with United Way.  The fundraiser will last from July 19 until August 1.

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 or Market Street location.

The K-Ready Kids School Supply Drive fundraiser will be instrumental in helping families with the yearly challenge of getting their elementary-aged children prepared for the new school year with new school supplies.

“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.”
