Watch battery sales to raise money for food pantry turkeys
The Jewelry Box of Lake Forest, which raises funds and collects food for South County Outreach throughout the year, is holding its first annual "Batteries for Birds" promotion. From now till December 19th, 100% of all watch battery purchases will be donated to a fund to buy Christmas turkeys for South County Outreach families in need. Christine and Jack had hoped to raise enough money to buy 100 birds but, at the current pace, they've revised their goal to 200 turkeys. Some of their generous customers have donated money to the fund without even buying the batteries.
