Jewel Shop & Share - Support Ellie and Carson

Support Ellie and Carson by Shopping at Jewel August 24-26

Our first Jewel Shop & Share is scheduled for this coming Mon-Wed (August 24, 25 & 26). And it's really easy.

If you shop at Jewel during these days, simply print and present this coupon ( to the cashier when paying for your groceries. That's all it takes!

Feel free to distribute the coupon to as many people as possible. The only restriction is that we are not allowed to pass out the coupon in front of any Jewel Food Store. If you can't make it to a Jewel Food Store during these days, we will have another event in November & December.

A fund has been established to cover future expenses for the children of Cari Lyn Cook, the Countryside woman who died May 19 after being struck by a vehicle while crossing 47th St in La Grange.

The children, two-year-old Ellie and four-month-old Carson, were with their mother at the time of the accident. Carson suffered a fractured leg; Ellie was unharmed.

Monies collected by the fund will be used to provide "education, child care, medical needs and any other costs related to the needs of the children," according to information posted on the Cari Lyn Cook memorial website,

"Although Carson and Ellie will have the love and support of many friends and family, life will not be easy as [Cari's husband] Matt tries to raise two young children while providing for his family," the website said.

The website also contains a guest book and photo album where visitors can share their thoughts, stories and pictures of Cari.
