The first 30 days Scottsboro City Mayor Jim McCamy has been in office have been very busy.
In the spirit of the season, we have provided The Giving List for our readers to reference local and area organizations, charities and opportunities in the hopes that it will make someone’s holiday season, including yours, a little brighter this year. The organizations and charities listed are current for this year, and each one comes with a brief explanation to help make your choices easier. Happy Holidays.
We are excited to announce that Aging at Home Support (formerly CASA of Jackson County) reopened in April of this year.
The Jackson County Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC), located in Scottsboro, relies greatly upon financial community support even more as they were recently informed that a large part of their grant budget would be cut by over $37,000, with more budget cuts looming for the next fiscal year. Because of the lack of funds, the center was forced to reduce their staff and the resources available to these children.
On September 24, 2014 the initial step in the construction of the Veterans Memorial Park of Jackson County began with the placement of the Army tank on land owned by VFW Post 6073 and American Legion Post 30. On Memorial Day, May 31, 2016, a ground-breaking ceremony was held. In October 2017 the first concrete was placed for Monument Circle and a ceremony was held to bury sands from foreign battlefields under the center of the star.
