Jacksons Food Stores and the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence recently launched the Give the Gift of Peace campaign, a holiday season effort that runs through Dec. 25 to raise funds for the prevention of domestic violence.

The campaign – in its 14th year – is important for community awareness and legislative efforts to ensure funding priorities for domestic violence victims.

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 with all proceeds going to the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

The Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence is nationally known for their innovative approach to preventing violence and promoting healthy relationships. Funds raised by the Give the Gift of Peace campaign will be used to support their prevention efforts for families and young people, developing and implementing new housing solutions for survivors and their families, and public policy advocacy that helps protect all people from violence.

The Washington campaign began in 2009, and customers have contributed by purchasing paper doves at Jacksons Food Stores. During the 2016 campaign, Washington Jacksons Food Stores customers contributed more than $10,000 resulting in more than $20,000 in donations, including Jacksons’ dollar-for-dollar match. Washington donations have resulted in over $240,000 over the last six years.

Jacksons Food Stores in Oregon, Idaho, Arizona, Nevada and Utah will also participate in the campaign
