MEDFORD, Ore. — Friends of the Animal Shelter and Jackson County Umpqua Bank branches are again teaming up for Coins For Kitties, a fundraising drive. Throughout the month of September, Coins For Kitties offers a convenient and tax deductible way to donate spare change to a great cause just by dropping by an Umpqua Bank location.

Coins For Kitties donations fund 2-Fur-1 adoptions of homeless cats and kittens. The 2-Fur-1 program enables qualified applicants to adopt two cats or kittens at the same time from the Jackson County Animal Shelter while paying only one $70 adoption fee; Friends of the Animal Shelter pays the second $70 adoption fee. Friends of the Animal Shelter and Umpqua Bank hope to raise $1,000 for the 2-Fur-1 program in the month of September.

Coins For Kitties containers are at Umpqua Bank during September only. Umpqua Bank is accepting Coins For Kitties donations at all Jackson County branch locations. Donors do not need to wrap or count their spare change. Umpqua Bank’s coin counting machines will tally donations free of charge.
