The Slaton Care Center has faced many challenges the past few months, including an outbreak of COVID that affected most of the Center.

They wanted to reward one of the employees for their hard work with a grocery shopping spree at United.

Terrance Mosely Jr., who won at the Slaton Center, went shopping March 1 at the Slaton store, having three minutes to fill their shopping cart – or carts – with as many items as he could. Once it was over, the corporate leader paid the bill in full.

Two other winners were selected in Lubbock for their health centers.

Joey Marcades, Communications Coordinator for The United Family, said they got involved when they were reached out to them about this program. “They wanted to do something special for their employees,” he said.

“After what has been a difficult year for everyone associated with the healthcare field, we thought this would be a great way to contribute to giving something back to that part of the community.”

There was no limit on the prices, number of items or carts. It, however, didn’t cover paper goods, cleaning products or alcohol.
