Getting a drink at the local beer and wine store will help put food in some people’s bellies.
Saturday, May 30, JAK’s Beer Wine & Spirits will donate 10% of its sales from all 13 of its locations across British Columbia to local food banks.
Claire MacLean, the CEO of Share Family and Community Services, said the company’s second annual campaign that includes the participation of its two shops in Coquitlam, is especially significant this year.
“Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, and every day, Share is here to support our local community,” she said in a press release.
Already, the organization has benefitted from the company’s pledge to donate a dollar from every bottle of its own JAK’s gratitude wine sold in the month of May to food banks.
Tim Dumas, JAK’s chief operation officer, said it’s the company’s way of giving back, especially in a critical time of need.
“We’re deeply connected to the communities we serve,” he said.
