In a world where kindness can seem to be in short supply and polarizing opinions have people more divided than ever; in The United Family the golden rule and the calling to truly serve people still drives us.
At United Supermarkets #548 in Abilene, grocery manager Sergio Aguillon, found himself with the opportunity to bless a guest and her uncle, Marvin Chaney, recently diagnosed with terminal cancer. What could have been nothing more than a guest question about an unavailable product turned into something much more.
Less than 24 hours after Mr. Chaney’s niece Sarah asked Sergio about getting her hands on her uncle’s only request – Cherry 7-Up (not available in Abilene), Sergio, store director Christal Faries, center store supervisor Cale Theilen and Cale’s wife Stacy, acquired the elusive Cherry 7-Up and granted a dying man’s wish. Watch this story from KTAB to see the chain of events that made it happen.
Never underestimate the power of a kind act. Thousands of guests pass through our doors every day. Some are having the best day of their lives; some the worst. Some have a full heart bursting with joy; some have a broken heart yearning for understanding. Every single time, we have a moment where we can make a difference.
Thank you Sergio and #548 for making a difference for Mr. Chaney.
