BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — The Junior League of Birmingham is teaming up with more than 500 retailers to give your wallet a little breathing room while giving back to local groups.

All of the proceeds from the sales of the Shop Save & Share cards goes directly to the Junior League of Birmingham and more than 30 community projects supported by the organization. That includes the Birmingham Public Library, Birmingham Botanical Gardens, Birmingham Children’s Theatre, Girls Inc. and plenty more.
Some of the participating shops include the Birmingham Zoo, Jack N’ Jill, Shoefly, and the McWane Center. The event also serves as a great way to kickoff the holiday shopping season.
