Shop Save & Share with the Junior League of Birmingham
The Junior League of Birmingham (JLB) is a local organization of “approximately 2,300 women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.” Their Shop Save, & Share (SSS) fundraiser focuses on raising money that goes straight back into the community towards one of JLB’s 35+ community partners.
For a $40 donation, shoppers can purchase their SSS card starting Sept. 10. With the SSS card, you’ll get a 20% discount at participating retailers—that’s 400+ restaurants, shops and more all over Birmingham. Cards can be purchased online or in person at specific retailers.
Maybe you want to get a head start on your Christmas shopping, or maybe you have a list of new local restaurants you want to try—the SSS card is the perfect way to support local businesses AND nonprofits in Birmingham.

Virginia Moore, Junior League of Birmingham’s Shop Save and Share Chair: “By purchasing a Shop Save & Share card customers have a direct impact on improving our local community, but it also allows customers to save money at the same time.
This year the sale runs through Auburn and Alabama bye weekends and away games which means it’s a great time to get out and support our local retailers and restaurants while giving back to our community!”
It’s so cool to see all these businesses coming together for such a good cause.
Don’t forget to purchase your card before Oct. 2. You seriously don’t want to miss these deals, and an awesome chance to give back to Birmingham.
