(Reno, NV)— On Thanksgiving Day, Jacksons Food Stores and the Nevada Network Against 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. This is the 12th year of the campaign throughout the Northwest. Contributions can be made in increments of $1, $5, or $10 at any Jacksons Food Store location. At the end of the campaign, Jacksons Chief Executive Officer, John Jackson, will match all customer contributions dollar for dollar up to $75,000, with all the proceeds going to the Nevada Network Against Domestic Violence.
Since 2008, customers have contributed to the campaign by purchasing paper doves at Jacksons Food Stores. During the 2014 campaign, Nevada Jacksons Food Stores customers contributed over $8,000, resulting in over $16,000 in donations, including Jacksons’ dollar for dollar match contribution.
Jacksons Food Stores in Washington, Oregon, Arizona and Idaho will also participate in the campaign, and proceeds will go toward coalitions against domestic violence in respective states. Since the inception of the “Give the Gift of Peace” campaign, over $1,030,000 has been raised to help end violence against women and children and assist individuals who have experienced domestic violence.
“Jacksons willingness to bring the attention of his customers to the daily struggles of victims and survivors working toward a violence-free life is tremendously important to our efforts to raise awareness,” says NNADV Executive Director Sue Meuschke, who also thanks those who gave generously last year.
Tax-deductible contributions to the Nevada Network Against Domestic Violence can be made online at www.nnadv.org.
