TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Eegee's has announced the beneficiary of the 24th annual Coupon Card program is the Johnjay & Rich Care for Kids Foundation.
The Johnjay and Rich Care for Kids Foundation’s mission is to improve the quality of life for children living within the foster care system by offering assistance, comfort and hope, according to the media release.
The organizations services are vital to helping those in need in Southern Arizona. 
During the month of June, eegee’s provides customers the opportunity to support a local non-profit organization. In return for a $7 donation, the customer will receive a coupon booklet with up to $48 in savings.
“The Coupon Card allows us to reward our customers’ generosity and support Southern Arizona based organizations that provide valuable services and benefits to people in need to help make life better in our local community," said Robert Santiago, Director of Marketing, eegee’s. 
In 2015, eegee's customers donated over $241,000 to BAGIT!, Ben’s Bells and Kick Cancer for Stephen through the Coupon Card program.
“With nearly 20,000 children in foster care in Arizona, we are honored to be the recipient of the eegee's coupon card this year so we may further support children who are facing life in the Arizona Foster Care, said Johnjay & Rich of 93.7 KRQ.
"Our goal is to one day have more foster families waiting for children than children waiting for families.”
