Specialized tags bring Blount group money

Kathy Lacks, director of Blount County Sav-A-Life Inc., located at 311 1st Avenue East, Oneonta, accepts a check for $3,250.50 from Bob Foust of Birmingham, who is with the “Support Adoption/ Choose Life” license tag group. That check was among others distributed by the Alabama Pro-Life Coalition Education Fund in a ceremony Sept. 25. This group receives $41.25 from each $50 “Support Adoption/Choose Life” license tags sold in the state of Alabama. Some 6780 tags were purchased between July 2008 and July 2009, netting the group $279,657.32 for its fiscal year to distribute to centers throughout the state. The board of directors, staff, and volunteers at the local Sav-A-Life organization thank each family that purchased a tag and enabled this center to receive a check.
