This #givingtuesday, you can give the best of Alabama makers through our 2017 holiday gift premium. This year, we are teaming up with the folks at Russell Supermarkets and Piggly Wiggly to deliver a handmade Dean’s Cake House 7-Layer Caramel Cakes to your friends’ and families’ doors.

Nearly 900,000 Alabamians – including 300,000 children – live in poverty. Alabama also has a wealth of untapped potential, and that’s why Alabama Possible works to break down barriers to prosperity through advocacy, education, and collaboration.

Thanks to you, thousands of low-income, minority, and first-generation college-going students across Alabama have access resources to pay for – and succeed in – postsecondary education through Cash for College and the Blueprints College Success Initiative.

Thanks to you, 1,500 business, education, and faith community leaders have confronted misperceptions about poverty through the Community Action Poverty Simulation.

For your donation of $95 or more, we’ll mail your honoree a delicious Dean’s Cake House 7-Layer Caramel Cake and a special note acknowledging your gift and their Alabama Possible membership.

At Dean’s Cake House, you won’t find any assembly line machines. Every cake is baked and iced individually in her cake house located in Andalusia. Learn more about Dean Jacobs and the legendary cake ladies of Alabama in this Southern Living feature.
