LUBBOCK, TX (COMMUNICATED) – From July 20 through August 1, United Family will once again partner with Lubbock area school districts to host a school supply drive for local students in need.
Just like in past years, guests will be encouraged to donate at checkout instead of buying physical school supplies for donation barrels. This will allow guests to make a monetary donation of any amount at checkout when purchasing their groceries.
The United Family kicked off the fundraiser by offering the superintendent of each participating school district a $150 gift card to make their own school supply purchases.
“We are very proud to once again partner with surrounding school districts to help raise funds for school supplies,” said Sidney Hopper, president of The United Family. “While new school supplies can add excitement to a new school year, they can also be a point of financial stress for many families. The money we raise will help ensure that every child is given an equal chance to succeed in the classroom this school year.
School districts benefiting from the supply campaign will include Lubbock ISD, Lubbock-Cooper ISD, Frenship ISD, Roosevelt ISD, Slaton ISD and Shallowwater ISD.
Guests will be able to donate at any United, Market Street or Amigos supermarket in Lubbock or Slaton. School staff will use the donated funds to purchase supplies and distribute them to their students who need them most.
