ACA Gives, Inc. – Founded 2019
We started a couple of years ago by helping our partners in law enforcement secure toys for the less fortunate in Randolph Co., Al. The founder, Mr. Barry Johnson, also a local BailBondsman had seen first hand how crime seemed to find those who were less fortunate and wanted to make a difference in this and surrounding counties. The concept of trying to focus on the children when they were young appealed to him as it does many because the youngest among us is the only hope this world has of initiating change for the future.
ACA Gives, Inc. became a non-profit in 2019 after seeing the need was real and there are in fact families right here in our community that is living in poverty. Randolph County, Al. has over 21% poverty rate according to the Alabama Department of Public Health and over 30% of those are children. Without help, these children could miss out on the joy felt by receiving gifts at Christmas.
During the holidays we focus on partnering with area business and law enforcement to collect new, unwrapped toys to distribute to the community during Christmas. Families are encouraged to apply with an application giving the number of people in the household and the proof of income. After receiving the application, we cross-reference it with other
organizations in the area to be sure that our efforts reach as many households as possible without crossover.
ACA Gives, Inc promotes the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual and social potential, as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local communities. If you or anyone you know would like to help us by donating new, unwrapped gifts please take them by your local law enforcement office or call Mr. Barry Johnson at A Call Away Bail Bonding directly 256-282-0995 and we can arrange for pick up if needed.
