<a href=”https://www.facebook.com/JacksWoodFiredOven/”>Jack’s Wood-Fired Oven</a> raised over $1,200 in its first three months of hosting CAPSA Day—a day each month where Jack’s donates 20 percent of every purchase to CAPSA. CAPSA Day was started by Marc Ensign, over of the restaurant, as a way to support CAPSA’s clients. According to CAPSA Development Director James Boyd, CAPSA Day is scheduled every third Wednesday through the end of the year, with the next CAPSA Day at Jack’s being this Wednesday, June 21, from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.
“They’ve made it simple,” Boyd said, “so just come in and eat lunch or dinner, and if you mention CAPSA or not, they’ll still donate 20 percent of all ticket sales to CAPSA.”
Boyd said the money from CAPSA Day supports <a href=”http://capsa.org/en/”>CAPSA</a>, a non-profit domestic violence, sexual abuse and rape recovery center serving Cache Valley and the Bear Lake area. He said CAPSA’s services are designed to help someone escape abuse and heal from the associated trauma. All services are free and confidential and are available for women, men and accompanied children. Services include emergency shelter, court advocacy, support groups, children’s services, housing programs and therapy.
Boyd said Jack’s has not only simplified the donation process, but also increased its community impact by not requiring patrons to mention CAPSA when they visit the restaurant. However, he asks guests to mention CAPSA nonetheless to let Jack’s know they are there to support the effort.
