Jackson Girls Sell Mistletoe for Charity

slide2-jackson_girls_sell_mistletoe_for_charity.pngAmador County - Two young philanthropists are heading up their second fundraiser for the Interfaith Food Bank. Last Saturday, Jackson residents Hannah Williams, age 8, and Arianna Madrigal, age 9, set up a mistletoe sale on the corner of HWY 49 and 88 in Jackson at the Amador County Properties real estate office. Last August, the girls came up with the idea of having a lemonade stand to help support both the Interfaith Food Bank and the Amador County Animal Shelter. In total, they raised $75 for the Food Bank and $36 were raised for the Animal Shelter. This year, the girls are hoping to raise at least $500. On day one of their mission they raised over $225. Once that is accomplished, they plan to double the money through Raley’s Food for Families program, resulting in $1000 to the food bank. They are planning a second day of mistletoe sales on Wednesday, December 23, from 10-5 at Amador County Properties. The holiday decorated mistletoe is $3 per bagged bundle.
