LUBBOCK, Texas — On Thursday, The United Family presented Children’s Miracle Network with a check for $103,199.52. The funds were raised in a company-wide donate-at-the-register campaign in May.

The donate-at-the-register campaign ran in stores across Texas and New Mexico, including United Supermarkets, Market Street, Albertsons Market and Amigos. As with past donate-at-the-register campaigns, guests were able to add any dollar amount to their grocery bill at checkout. The money will go directly to support the Children’s Miracle Network hospital in the community where the funds were raised.

As an organization, Children’s Miracle Network’s mission is to increase funds and awareness for UMC Children’s Hospital and other Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. The organization raises funds for 170 children’s hospitals that support the health of 10 million kids each year across the U.S. and Canada.

“On behalf of UMC, I am very grateful to our partner, The United Family, for their absolute love for kids,” said Mark Funderburk, CEO of UMC. “Their generous gift to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals of $103,000 - captured at their registers - is a reflection of the gracious spirit of their loyal customers. UMC is the region’s only Children’s Miracle Network hospital...and like United, we love kids!”

“The United Family is extraordinarily blessed and thankful to have guests who are generous and recognize the importance of the work that Children’s Miracle Network does across our communities,” said Chris James, COO of The United Family. “We know these funds will truly make a difference in the lives of children and families all across Texas and New Mexico.”

The check presentation occurred as team members with The United Family gathered at University Medical Center in Lubbock, Texas. University Medical Center is a Children’s Miracle Network hospital for the South Plains.
