“I’m always amazed at how our store guests and team members rise to the occasion to help partner with such a great organization in our community. We are excited to do our part to help.” 

Since becoming a Special Olympics supporter in 2015, United Express and The United Family have raised more than $100,000 for the organization’s chapters across the region.  

“The Special Olympics is so thankful for the support of United Express and its guests,” said J’Nette Thorne, executive director for Special Olympics West Region

“We work every day to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them opportunities to grow as people. We couldn’t do that without the support of partners like United Express. The money raised in this campaign will bring joy to so many of our athletes and their families.”
