The South Baldwin Chamber Foundation asks businesses and residents to open their hearts and checkbooks and “give ’til it feels great.” The foundation has officially kicked off Giving Tuesday in South Baldwin County, encouraging people to make a contribution to the Leader In Me program at Foley Elementary School.
The Leader In Me program teaches elementary-age children leadership and life skills. The program creates a culture of learning that encourages all children to be a leader in some fashion. The program puts the emphasis on our children - our future leaders - not only locally, but worldwide.
While the fundraiser was centered around Giving Tuesday on Nov. 29, donations will continue to be accepted. The foundation hopes to raise $25,000 with the support of the community.
