The United Family® is joining Acosta Marketing and manufacturers to again collaborate in the fight against neuromuscular disease through Muscular Dystrophy Association’s (MDA) 17th annual Aisles of Smiles campaign. All 66 United Supermarkets, Market Street, Albertsons Market, Amigos and United Express locations in West Texas, Dallas-Fort Worth and New Mexico are participating.
Available now through Sept. 4, guests can purchase products marked with special “Aisles of Smiles” tags, and a portion of the proceeds will support MDA’s research to find treatments and cures for muscular dystrophy and other neuromuscular diseases. In addition, beginning Wednesday, Aug. 12, guests can also support MDA with a monetary donation by purchasing a $1 or $5 scan tag at checkout.
“The United Family is committed to the health and wellness in our communities, and the Aisles of Smiles campaign allows our guests the opportunity to help families living with muscular dystrophy through their everyday purchases,” said Shelby Crews, senior community relations manager for The United Family. “After seeing the success of the Aisles of Smiles campaign from previous years, we’re eager to continue giving to those in need again this year.”
MDA is the world’s leading nonprofit health organization sponsoring research seeking the causes of and effective treatments for neuromuscular diseases. MDA research grants currently are supporting more than 250 projects worldwide.
