School is right around the corner already! And many kids in our area can't afford all the supplies they need. The United Family of stores is going to do a school supply drive to help ensure all our local kids have the tools they need to succeed in school.

From July 18th through the 29th you when you shop at any United, Market Street, or Amigos in Lubbock and Slaton you can buy school supplies and drop them in the donation barrels in the front of the stores. Or you can make cash donations at check out too. All the donated supplies will go to kids in need at all local districts including LISD, Cooper, Frenship, Roosevelt, and Slaton. Each school district will donate the supplies directly to the families that need them.

So next time you're shopping make sure to buy an extra set of pens, or a notebook, or ANY school supply and drop it in the barrel. What may be a dollar to you, could mean a child's success for life in school.
