LUBBOCK, Texas — United Supermarkets will join with representatives of the Muscular Dystrophy Association to kick-off “Aisles of Smiles,” a campaign to raise money for the organization and its mission of fighting neuromuscular disease on Thursday, September 1 at 10:00 a.m. at United Supermarkets (6313 4th Street).
Throughout the campaign, guests of United Supermarkets, Market Street and Amigos will be able to purchase qualifying products throughout the store with a portion of the sale being contributed to MDA. From September 1 through 14, guests will also be able to donate any dollar amount to MDA through a donate-at-the-register campaign.
The MDA was started in 1950 by a group of people looking to better the lives of those who deal with neuromuscular conditions. 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.
The campaign kick-off event will consist of brief comments followed by a ceremonial first donation.
