Jack’s Raises More Than $150,000 in Customer Donations for Kids to Love

Restaurant’s Show Some Love Campaign led by employee-fueled fundraising

 

MADISON, AL-  Employees across all the 143 locations of Jack’s Family Restaurants, LP have raised $157,779 in customer donations for Madison-based, Kids to Love Foundation.

 “This donation is a testament to the dedication we and our customers have to the communities across our footprint of Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee and Georgia that Kids to Love helps to support,” said Todd Bartmess, Jack’s Family Restaurant CEO.

 The fundraising was a result of the eight-week long “Show Some Love” Campaign hosted by the restaurant to continue its long-time initiative of community support. In addition to the monetary donation, Jack’s restaurants across the southeast hosted a number of events including car washes, spirit nights and motorcycle bike rides to collect pantry items and school supplies.

 "Kids to Love is growing every year, either by expanding our current programs or creating new ones," says Founder/ CEO Lee Marshall. "The ongoing support of Jack's restaurants allows that growth to continue, and gives us more chances to make life better for foster children.”
