Jacksons Food Stores helps fight domestic violence

In the 13th anniversary year of the Give the Gift of Peace campaign, Jacksons Food Stores and its customers donated a total of $168,361 – $93,361 from customer donations and $75,000 matched by Jacksons – as part of the commitment to create Compassionate Communities.

Since the inception of the campaign, more than $1.2 million has been raised. This year’s campaign ran from Nov. 23 through Christmas Day.

Jacksons sold paper doves in $1, $5 and $10 increments in all of their stores in six states of operation to raise funds for the prevention, education and support for victims of domestic violence and their children, sexual assault survivors and adolescents experiencing relationship abuse.

During the 2016 campaign in Washington, Jacksons Food Stores and its customers donated a total of $19,421 ($10,770 from customer donations and $8,651 matched by Jacksons).

The Tukwila store, 13138 Interurban Ave. S., was in the top ten stores for the most money raised in this year’s campaign.
