It’s Bo Time = United Ability Time.

United Ability, one of Bham Now’s favorite organizations has teamed up with Bojangles’ 14 Birmingham area locations to raise funds for the non-profit till December 24.

An organization that provides innovative services connecting people with disabilities to their communities and empowering individuals to live full and meaningful lives, United Ability,  has served the Magic City for more than 70 years.

How does the Bojangles’ fundraiser work?

Running through Christmas Eve, Bojangles’ customers are invited to support United Ability by making a $1 contribution along with their meal purchase at participating Bojangles’ restaurants. Customers will then be asked to endorse a card which will be displayed in the store dining area or kitchen. As a thank you, participating customers will receive a voucher for a free sweet biscuit. One hundred percent of the proceeds from donations will benefit United Ability.

Here is a recent segment on WBRC’s Good Day Alabama with Jehjeh Pruitt that describes the program in detail.
