In the 14th anniversary year of the “Give the Gift of Peace” campaign, Jacksons Food Stores and its customers donated a total of $183,573.52 — $91,786.76 from customer donations and matched by Jacksons — to coalitions against domestic violence from Idaho, Washington, Oregon, Arizona, Nevada, and Utah.

The donation represents part of the store’s commitment to create more compassionate communities. Since the inception of the campaign, more than $1,300,000 has been raised in total.

The campaign ran from Nove. 22 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.
