The following is a press release from The United Family:

LUBBOCK, Texas (PRESS RELEASE) – Throughout September, all United Family locations in Texas and New Mexico will begin raising funds and awareness for muscular dystrophy, ALS and related neuromuscular diseases during the annual MDA Aisles of Smiles program benefiting the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).

From September 1-14, customers at United, Market Street, Albertsons Market and Amigos supermarkets can add any dollar amount to their grocery bill during a 14-day give-at-checkout campaign.

In September, United Family will also participate in MDA’s annual Aisles of Smiles campaign. For this part of the campaign, customers have the option to purchase eligible products marked with Aisles of Smiles tags at all stores. A portion of the sale of these specific products will be used to support MDA’s research into treatments and cures for muscular dystrophy and other neuromuscular diseases.

MDA funds groundbreaking research, including world-class multidisciplinary care at the MDA Care Center at the University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque, Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth, TX Neurology, PA, James W. Aston Ambulatory Care Center and Dallas Children’s Medical Center.

Funds raised also make possible the MDA Summer Camp, giving children the opportunity to learn life-saving skills, form lifelong friendships and experience independence, at no cost to their families. The funds also benefit MDA’s advocacy efforts to provide access to healthcare, travel, education and inclusive environments for the disability community.

“We are thrilled to partner with MDA again for the Aisles of Smiles program in our stores,” said Sidney Hopper, president of The United Family. “Every donation empowers children and adults with neuromuscular diseases, especially now that we are seeing the impact of MDA’s investment in research leading to treatments. We are proud to support their mission.
