The United Family Celebrates 100 Years with $100K Donation
In celebration of its 100th anniversary, The United Family will donate $100,000 to local schools throughout West Texas, Dallas-Fort Worth and Eastern New Mexico, as part of its Shop to Support Schools program.
From Jan. 13 through Oct. 15, shoppers can link a school of choice to their rewards account at any United Supermarkets, United Express, Market Street, Albertsons Market and Amigos grocery locations and earn points as they shop. At the end of the earning period, the Lubbock, Texas-based company will award $1,000 to 100 schools based on the percentage of each school’s shopping activity.
“United Supermarkets has long held fast to the belief that supporting education is important and we have looked for ways to do that,” said Robert Taylor, president of The United Family. “This program is designed to let our guests make their hard-earned dollars do more than just buy groceries. It really lets them have a voice in making donations directly to schools.”
To sign up for the program, shoppers can visit www.unitedtexas.com or use the United Market mobile app.
The United Family operates 66 stores under the United Supermarkets, Market Street, Amigos, Albertsons Market and United Express banners, along with ancillary operations R.C. Taylor Distributing, Praters and Llano Logistics. The company is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Albertson’s LLC.
