It is the season of giving, and in that spirit we are preparing for 7 Cares Idaho Shares Day this Saturday.

Businesses and individuals across our area are stepping up to help out, like Jacksons Food Stores -- one of our companies that care.

They have pledged to donate at least $10,000 to help out nonprofits in our area like the Boise Rescue Mission, Idaho Foodbank and Salvation Army.

"Jacksons feels very lucky to have the opportunity to give responsibly in our community and we are so happy to join a strong campaign and a wonderful team," said Katrina Lemmon, Jacksons Food Stores advertising and promotions manager.

You can be a part of the team as well by making a cash or food donation on Saturday, December 10 between 7 a.m. and 1 p.m. at Albertsons stadium, or at one of the 8 Fred Meyer stores or 28 Albertsons stores in the Treasure Valley and Twin Falls.

We'll be broadcasting live from several of those locations.
