United Family Donates Over $22,000 To Special Olympics of Texas
The United Family has always been very involved in the Lubbock community and today they are helping athletes here in Lubbock and across the State of Texas.
United Express and the United Family on Tuesday announced they would be donated $22,285 to Special Olympics of Texas. The money raised was the total raised across all locations of United Express throughout Texas.
The money raised will be divided up among the areas and communities in which they were raised. That means Special Olympic athletes across Texas will benefit from the money raised in their own communities. According to a press release from United Supermarkets, the funding provided will help kickoff the 2021 competitive season.
“Special Olympics Texas is so proud to partner with The United Express Stores across our West and North Texas markets,” said Ashley Pena, west region associate executive director for Special Olympics Texas. “As we come back from more than a year away from the playing field, the funding provided to us through this campaign will help us kick off our 2021 competition season. Partnerships such as this, are how we as an organization continue to provide life changing opportunities for thousands of athletes across the state, especially those in our own community. We look forward to the continued growth of our partnership and serving our athletes together.”
This is yet another great example of local business helping our local non-profit organizations here in Lubbock. United Supermarkets, which yes is owned now by Albertson's still haven't forgotten their roots in the community.
