Jack’s Family Restaurants donate $125K to Kids to Love Foundation

MADISON – Jack’s Family Restaurants has donated $125,000 to the Kids to Love Foundation to support the organization’s goal of finding “forever families” for children who are waiting for adoption.

Lee Marshall, CEO of Kids to Love Foundation, accepted the donation on behalf of the organization. Kids to Love assists children in foster care and recruits adoptive parents to provide lifelong homes.

“Children in foster care don’t know the privilege of being part of a community. Jack’s is helping us change that,” Marshall said. Since 2004, the Kids to Love Foundation has directly impacted the lives of more than 225,000 foster children.

“The company and customers have come along beside us for many years and, when our kids see that kind of continued community, it builds their confidence and shows that people are in their corner cheering for them,” Marshall said.

Jack’s corporate-giving component, Jack’s Family Fund, conducted a fundraising campaign for Kids to Love from Sept. 30 through Oct. 20. Jack’s remains committed to serving its communities and being there during times of need, according to company officials.

Jack’s provided local Alabama news anchors and influencers with white ribbons to wear during National Adoption Week to help spread the message. Jack’s employees also hosted their own fundraising events, including community car shows and yard sales, to earn donations.

“We’re humbled to be supporting the Kids to Love Foundation with this donation,” Jack’s CEO Todd Bartmess said. “Our communities have come together to take care of each other, just like family does in the South.”

Since 2017, Jack’s Family Fund has facilitated more than 446 grants in various communities across the South. Each week, 1,669 Jack’s employees donate to help community families. In partnering with the Kids to Love Foundation, Jack’s helps to continue the work of impacting the lives of thousands of foster children.
