Kids To Love 2021 – Donate Early

Jack Family Restaurants’ Kids to Love Foundation campaign will run September 8–28, 2021, at every Jack’s location. But you don’t have to wait.  Be one of the first to support this year’s campaign by donating online or by texting “JFF-K2L” to (202) 858-1233.  Donate in person at any Jack’s location beginning Sept. 8th. Jack’s employees are also hosting their own fundraising events at various locations in creative efforts to increase donations, including community car shows, yard sales and more.

Jack’s Family Fund, Jack’s corporate giving arm, is proud to support this important cause with a fundraising campaign for the fourth year in a row. Last year, Jack’s Kids to Love Campaign raised $125,000, which helped positively impact the lives of the hundreds of local children.

With family and community value at its core, Jack’s is dedicated to helping Kids to Love make life brighter for the thousands of Alabama children in foster care. Kids to Love’s goal is to help find lifelong homes and to recruit adoptive parents for children in foster care.

Bucks for Biscuits Returns

Bucks for Biscuits returns. Ten brave biscuit lovers will compete on March 11th during the 60th Anniversary Jacks Convention. This time there’s a twist – they will only have Coke to drink (because Coke is sponsoring the event.)

The first Bucks for Biscuit challenge raised $2650 for the Jack’s Family Fund. Help us set a new record and show your support of our biscuit lovers by placing a $5 bet on who you think will win. There will a prize drawing from the pool of all those who bet on the winning competitor.

Fund raises $217,000 for Kids To Love

After nearly 60 years of charitable commitment to the communities it serves, Jack’s Restaurants has launched its own separate non-profit foundation to continue its longtime commitment to community support. The Jack’s Family Foundation kicked off with the annual eight-week “Show Some Love” campaign in Jack’s Restaurants. The campaign featured a number of events, including car washes, spirit nights, and motorcycle rides to collect donations.

In the last two years, the campaign raised $178,000 and $157,000, respectively. This year, Jack’s Restaurants surpassed those numbers by a wide margin, as customers and employees in 157 stores raised $217,000 – the most Jack’s Restaurants has ever raised in a single philanthropic effort. Proceeds from the campaign, which ran from August 8 to September 25, will benefit Kids to Love, a Huntsville organization dedicated to helping Alabama children in foster care.

Jack’s has been working with Kids to Love for the past eight years; three years ago, Jack’s made Kids to Love their annual companywide fundraiser.

Jack’s #136 in Red Bay, AL, was the top-performing store in this year’s fundraiser, raising $10,773 throughout the eight-week campaign. Jack’s CEO Todd Bartmess says the Red Bay store is representative of the larger culture at Jack’s Restaurants, where customers and employees alike are dedicated to giving back to their communities:

“At Jack’s, we are privileged to be a part of improving the lives of foster children; one of our Core Values at Jack’s is to be an integral part of the communities where we do business. The Jack’s family – customers and team members alike – were passionate about doing their best to help out, and we are proud to partner with Kids to Love.”

“We love how Jack’s loves our kids!” says Lee Marshall, founder and CEO of Kids to Love. “This partnership is an amazing support for our programs that directly impact the kids we serve in foster care. The Jack’s employees are amazing ambassadors for Kids to Love.”

On October 17 at 1:00 p.m. at Davidson Farms, Kids to Love will receive a $217,000 check from Michael Greco, Chairman of the Board of Jack’s Family Fund, and Christy Malone, Jack’s Restaurants Brand Manager. For more information, or to cover this event, contact Christy Malone at 205.201.7809 or
