“As a family business we’re deeply connected to the communities we serve, and now more than ever we feel called to give back to those in need – and give gratitude to the selfless food bank staff and volunteers who are keeping shelves stocked at food banks across B.C.,” said Tim Dumas, chief operating officer at JAK’s.

The liquor store is also donating $1 from every bottle of JAK’s gratitude wine sold this month to local food banks.

There are 13 JAK’s locations across B.C. with two in Campbell River. They are located at Timberline Village and Discovery Harbour.
