AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — Thursday, officials from The United Family (UF) donated to Children’s Miracle Network with a check for $103,199.52. that was raised during a donate-at-the-register campaign in May.
According to a UF release, the 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.
“We know when communities and partners unite in our mission to improve the health and wellbeing of all children our impact grows exponentially,” said Teri Nestel, President & CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “When we can change kids’ health, we can change the future – for all of us.”
Officials said Children’s Miracle Network’s mission is to increase funds and awareness for 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. 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.
“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.”
