The United Family Hosts School Supply Drive

The United FDSC_0743amily® is again partnering with Lubbock-area schools to host “Project SOS: Supply our Students,” a school supply drive for local students in need. From July 22 through August 11, United Family guests are encouraged to purchase school supplies and drop them into barrels located near the entrance of any United Supermarkets, Market Street or Amigos locations in Lubbock and Slaton. Additionally, a cash donation option is now part of Project SOS to allow customers another level of participation in the program simply upon checkout at any of the partnering locations.

Dr. Michelle McCord, Interim Superintendent of Schools for Frenship ISD joined other area school administrators on Wednesday, July 22 to be among the first to fill up barrels with school supplies at the United Supermarket located at 82nd and Boston in Lubbock.

School districts that will benefit from the drive include Frenship ISD, Lubbock ISD, Lubbock Cooper ISD, Roosevelt ISD and Slaton ISD. We thank the United Family for their dedicated support to their community and area schools as we prepare for another exciting school year.
