Jacksons Food Stores to fight domestic violence


Jacksons Food Stores and the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence have launched 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 and dating violence through community awareness.

The stores are associated with two Shell stations in Bellevue, 12001 NE Eighth St. and 3670 150th Ave. SE.

At the end of the campaign, Jacksons Chief Executive Officer John Jackson will match Jacksons Food Stores customers’ contributions dollar for dollar up to $75,000 with all the proceeds going to the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

Since 2003, customers have contributed to the campaign by purchasing a paper dove for one dollar at Jacksons Food Stores. In the 2011 campaign, customers contributed over $29,000, resulting in over $58,000 in donations. The Washington campaign began in 2009, and donations have resulted in over $94,000 over the three years.
