United Supermarkets helps fight reading loss with donation to Lubbock Boys and Girls Club’s Strides Reading Program

LUBBOCK, Texas — On Thursday, United Supermarkets will hold a check presentation with the Lubbock Boys and Girls Club at the J.T. & Margaret Talkington Boys and Girls Club, 2603 Kawanee Avenue, at 4:00 p.m. The donation will specifically go to their Strides Reading Program.

Every summer presents the possibility that some students may lose some of the progress they have made during the school year — this can especially happen with reading. As summer approaches for students in Lubbock, United Supermarkets is helping keep books in their hands throughout the summer so they can succeed when the school bell rings once again.

Please join us to learn more about this important program and what the Lubbock Boys and Girls Club is doing to help the community’s children.
