Local liquor stores raise over $3,000 for Campbell River Food Bank

JAK’s Beer Wine & Spirits is helping keep food bank shelves stocked. 

Both Campbell River locations participated in the province-wide JAK’s Gives Back campaign on May 30th, with 10 per cent of sales that day going to food banks across B.C.

A total of $3,465.40 was raised for the Campbell River Food Bank.

“Our communities rallied behind JAK’s Gives Back this year like never before by stocking up, making personal donations at the cashier, and through purchasing our Gratitude wine,” said Chief Operating Officer Tim Dumas.

“We bumped this campaign up by a month because we saw our communities needed our support now, and we beat last year’s $20,000 donation thanks to our customers, who showed up to make a difference even on a rainy and stormy Saturday.”

Of the 13 JAK’s locations in the province that took part, a record-breaking combined total of $25,137.30 was raised.

JAK’s also donated $1 from every bottle of its Gratitude wine sold last month to the campaign.
