Jacksons Food Stores announced recently that the Boys & Girls Club will now be its primary giving recipient.
Before the partnership was confirmed, the company collaborated with the nonprofit this year for a customer coin drive to support the Boys & Girls Club. After announcing that customers had raised $101,881, Jacksons announced that the company was going to match the amount raised.
“We were so inspired by the generosity of our customers, sharing in the enthusiasm as the totals grew and grew, that we decided to acknowledge our customers by matching their gifts to provide even more resources for the critical work being done by the Boys & Girls Clubs in our communities,” said Jacksons president Cory Jackson in a press release.
According to the release, the funds will be distributed across several states, including Washington. In the South Sound region, Jacksons has locations in Tacoma, Lacey, Puyallup, Sumner, and other cities; the Boys & Girls Club has a South Puget Sound branch as well.
The release added that Jacksons is planning an additional Boys & Girls Club winter fundraising campaign and plans to again match amounts raised by customers.
