The Albertville Chamber of Commerce and “Blessings in a Backpack” invites you to “Lose Your Lunch Money” Wednesday, June 12 at the Albertville Farmer’s Market parking lot as well as the Chamber’s circle drive.

From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., local participants enjoying their lunch break can drop monetary donations, cash or coins, into designated containers placed at either of the two downtown locations with the added convenience of not even having to leave their car.

Proceeds from the drive by fundraiser will go towards funding additional needs of the organization during the 2013-2014 school year, which include purchasing easy-to-prepare food items to be placed in a backpack and sent home with children in need.
