In an effort to support the communities they serve, Jack’s local restaurants, along with its guests and partners, raised more than $70,000 from March 25-April 12 to benefit local organizations and families in crisis as a result of COVID-19.
The money was raised through donations from guests and additional funds from Jack’s partners including local media affiliates, Coca-Cola, Dr Pepper, Mayfield Dairy Farms, The University of Alabama, Lamar Advertising Company and THINC Advertising.
The donations will be shared among each of the communities Jack’s serves and will be given directly to food pantries, Meals on Wheels and local United Way affiliates that are providing those in need with access to food and essential services.
“In the South, we take care of each other and I cannot thank our guests and our partners enough for their donations to help those in need during this unprecedented time,” said Jack’s CEO Todd Bartmess. “Throughout our 60 years, we have always put our communities first and supported them however we can. We are grateful to be joined by our guests and partners in providing assistance to those affected by COVID-19.”
