Why are text messages coming thru like this?

I signed up for text alerts for a particular thing, but they don't come thru properly. They actually show up as being from someone in my contacts list. But when I open it they are from the thing I signed up for. How do I keep it from showing up as the person in my contacts list when they are not from that person.

I did happen to notice the # the texts come from(5 digit #) for the alerts has numbers that are within the person in my contacts list. So is there any way to fix it so it doesn't say there name when I get an alert?
