I just received an email from the United Family about Red Cross donations. Not only are all of the United stores, United, Amigos, Market Street, United Express, and Albertson's taking donations at the register, but they are also matching all donations.

The United Family of stores will accept any and all monetary donations at their registers at check out from $1 and up. And they will match all of those donations for the relief efforts up to $10,000! So if you are planning on donating to the Red Cross to aid in hurricane relief try to stop by any of these great stores and donate there since your donation will go twice as far. And thank you to the entire United family, every employee at all of their stores. They are always ready to help any community in need.

The United Family is encouraging guests to join this monetary support effort rather than donating physical supplies to ensure that American Red Cross support services have the flexibility to access whatever supplies and resources are deemed most necessary as the flood waters start to recede and families take stock of their homes and businesses. As a company, The United Family is working through several relief agencies to get necessary product collected and delivered where logistics are in place to distribute to affected families.
