Jack’s Launches Kids to Love Foundation Campaign to Help Foster Children Find Forever Homes
Ala. (September 6, 2021) – Southern staple, Jack’s Family Restaurants, is launching a charitable campaign on September 8, 2021 for the Alabama-based Kids to Love Foundation to support the organization’s mission of finding “forever families” for children who are waiting to be adopted.
Jack’s corporate giving arm, Jack’s Family Fund, is proud to support this important cause with a fundraising campaign for the fourth year in a row. 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.
Jack’s Kids to Love Foundation campaign will run September 8–21 at every Jack’s location. Contributors can donate online and via text message or donate in-person at local Jack’s restaurants. 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.
“We are proud to continue to support such an impactful and admirable nonprofit organization across all Jack’s locations,” says Todd Bartmess, CEO, Jack’s Family Restaurants. “Our team is honored to come together with our community to raise awareness and help fund efforts that support children and families in need. With our growing number of locations, we hope that 2021 will be our most successful year of donations yet.”
Lee Marshall, CEO, Kids to Love Foundation, says, “Jack’s has been a cherished Kids to Love community partner for many years, donating to help us achieve our mission of finding stable families for foster children. We are grateful for their continued partnership in supporting the youth we serve.”
For the past several years, Jack’s Family Restaurants has supported Kids to Love as part of an effort to make corporate giving a permanent part of their business.
