MAMA BEARS

ABOUT THE MAMA BEARS

Who are the Jackson Mama Bears? We are a group of mothers, stepmothers, and designated mothers of every Jackson high school football player (freshmen, sophomores, juniors, seniors).

 

What do they do? Our purpose is to provide support and spirit to the Jackson High School Football program.

 

How do they do that? We organize fundraisers and events, such as our car wash, annual auction, and end of season banquets. We seek donations from football families, friends, and local businesses. We work with the coaching staff and the administration in support of the high school football program.

 

When do they meet? We begin forming committees in February, meet periodically in the summer on Monday evenings, and starting in August, we meet every Monday at the high school at 6:30 p.m.

 

How do you become a Mama Bear? Simply join us on a Monday evening in the Library

at Jackson High School.

We also help with expenses for high dollar equipment that is needed to help our team do their very best!
