United Family, Southern Division Support Wildfire Relief

United Family wildfire relief

On March 29, The United Family and the Southern Division of Albertsons Companies presented the Amarillo Area Foundation with a check for $300,000, marking the conclusion of their Panhandle wildfire disaster relief register campaigns that ran March 8-23.

The funds will go to the foundation’s Panhandle Disaster Relief Fund, helping those impacted by the wildfires. 

The United Family and the Southern Division launched the campaign following three devastating Panhandle wildfires: Smokehouse Creek, Windy Deuce and Grape Vine Creek. Combined, they charred more than a million acres. 

“I want to thank the guests across the region for answering the call to help our neighbors in the  Texas Panhandle,” said Sidney Hopper, president of The United Family. 

“There is nothing more powerful than neighbors helping each other. And, of course, I’d like to thank Wes Jackson and the team with the Southern Division for their partnership and commitment to the community; these funds are going to have a huge impact. 

“Lastly, I would like to thank the Amarillo Area Foundation for their tireless work to help this region recover during tough times like these.” 

The Southern Division and The United Family are divisions within Albertsons Companies. The Southern Division includes Tom Thumb and Albertsons in Dallas-Fort Worth, Randalls in Austin  and Houston and Albertsons in Louisiana. 

The United Family operates in North and West Texas and New Mexico under seven banners, including United Supermarkets, Market Street, Albertsons Market, Amigos, United Express, Market Street Express and Albertsons Market Express.
