When the Jackson County United Givers Fund kicks off its fifty-fifth year of fundraising on behalf of Jackson County charities, Bruce’s Foodland will be there to help support the work of UGF and the local programs it helps support. From September 1st through September 30th, customers at Foodland’s three Jackson County locations will have an opportunity to help local charities by “rounding up” their total bill up to the nearest dollar. The proceeds will go to UGF to help Jackson County health and human service programs during the coming year.
Local charities benefiting from UGF support include the Arc of Jackson County, American Red Cross, Boys and Girls Club, Ben Sanford Center, Boy Scouts, Care Assurance System for the Aging and Homebound (CASA), Children’s Advocacy Center-Jackson County; Christmas Charities, Crisis Services, Girl Scouts, IMPACT Learning Center, Jackson County 4-H Clubs, Life Resource Center, Michael Scott Learning Center and Northeast AL Health Services. All are non-profit and provide services to the people of Jackson County. All depend upon the help of UGF to carry out their work.
When you shop at Foodland in Scottsboro, Section or Stevenson during the next few days, UGF hopes you will keep these programs and their needs in mind, and that you will donate the few extra cents to help them out. Small donations add up to make a big difference for those in need.
