LUBBOCK -- United Supermarkets locations are generating awareness and financial support for CASA in West Texas. From April 2 to 16, guests can add a cash donation to their grocery purchase during checkout.

"Our guests place an emphasis on the community, and by partnering with worthy causes such as CASA, we have an opportunity to help protect at-risk children," said Shelby Crews, community relations manager for The United Family. "The money raised will provide advocates for children in our own community who deserve a voice."

CASA volunteers are appointed by a judge to speak on behalf of abused and neglected children in foster care. Each donation from The United Family™ will help recruit, train and support community advocates for more than 1,000 children in the foster care system each year. 

Each dollar raised will go directly to CASA in the stores community.
