Circles of Jackson County is launching their first annual online auction fundraiser today, with lots of incredible items up for grabs.
The mission of Circles of Jackson County Inc. is to provide the short- and long-term support that enables families currently living in poverty to move into financial sustainability through education, employment readiness assistance, and the creation of community support systems. The group also works to educate the community about poverty and reduce the barries to success for all persons.
Circles’ two-step process is a 21-month commitment. First, clients complete a 15-week class covering the personal, interpersonal, and financial tools necessary to move beyond poverty. Then they are paired with two trained volunteers, who meet with them weekly over the next 18 months.
Bidding opened at 6 am Monday morning and will continue throughout the week, with everything being done online. To view the items being auctioned, visit
