If you'd like to help people here in the Uptown area to be able to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal, you can do so by making a donation at the Jewel at Broadway and Montrose. There are signs like this at the checkouts:
Thanksgiving is coming and that means it is time for turkey dinners. Unfortunately there are still a large number of our neighbors and friends that will be without a Thanksgiving Dinner due to economic hardship. For the last few years Jewel-Osco has been proud to get involved with local churches and food pantries to deliver dinners to thousands of families within our communities. This year our store will be delivering all proceeds collected to St. Mary's of the Lake.
That means that all of your donation dollars remain local. It is truly wonderful to see how caring our customers and associates really are. There are so many families that would have gone without last year for Thanksgiving if it had not been for this program.
Please consider giving today. All donation amounts are greatly needed and appreciated. You can elect to either deposit cash into our collection cup or we can conveniently add it to your bill and you can pay with credit or debit.
If you feel like you want to share the gift of an entire dinner for a family in need, the donation amount is $50.00.
Thank you for your continued support. Together we can make a difference in many people's lives this holiday season.
