Jacksons Food Stores Join Arizona in the Fight Against Domestic Violence
On Thanksgiving Day, Jacksons Food Stores and the Arizona Coalition to End Sexual & Domestic Violence will launch the “Give the Gift of Peace” campaign, a holiday season campaign that runs through December 25th to raise funds for the prevention of domestic violence. Two thousand fifteen marks the 12– year anniversary of the campaign throughout the West. Contributions can be made in increments of $1, $5, or $10. At the end of the campaign, Jacksons Chief Executive Officer, John Jackson, will match Jacksons Food Stores customer contributions dollar for dollar up to $75,000, with all the proceeds going to the Arizona Coalition to End Sexual & Domestic Violence.
Last year was the first year of the campaign in Arizona. Arizona Jacksons Food Stores customers contributed nearly $4,000, resulting in almost $8,000 in donations for the state, including Jacksons’ dollar for dollar match contribution.
Jacksons Food Stores in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Nevada will also participate in the campaign, and proceeds will go toward coalitions against domestic violence in the respective states. Since the inception of the “Give the Gift of Peace” campaign, over $1,030,000 has been raised through this program to help end violence against women and girls and assist individuals who have experienced domestic violence.
