Since its founding in 1916 by Henry Dewitt Snell, The United Family has been dedicated to giving back to those who so faithfully support its grocery store banners including United Supermarkets, United Express, Market Street, Amigos and Albertsons Market. By partnering with local food banks and community organizations the company is committed to improving and benefiting the communities it serves throughout West Texas, Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) and Eastern New Mexico. Listed below are several community relations efforts The United Family executed throughout 2016 in an effort to show appreciation to its guests.
The United Family celebrated a historic milestone in 2016 with the 100th Anniversary of United Supermarkets. The company commemorated a century of service with an entire year of initiatives to benefit the communities it serves throughout West Texas, DFW and Eastern New Mexico. In January 2016 The United Family launched its Shop to Support Schools program followed by Take a Bite Out of Hunger in April, the 100 Days of Giving campaign in May, food bank donations in June and hospital donations in November to close out the year. Each of these initiatives are outlined individually below.
The 100 Days of Giving campaign was aimed to express appreciation for the many communities that have supported The United Family throughout the past century. For 100 consecutive days the company donated $1,000 to a different local nonprofit throughout West Texas, DFW and Eastern New Mexico. By the end of the campaign, The United Family donated $100,000 to local organizations that have shown commitment to the communities they serve.
