Purpose: Bob Evans will donate 15% of its sales on Sunday, December 1, 2013, between the hours of 6:00 A.M. – 9:00 P.M., to The DeSean Jackson Foundation, a charitable organization founded by Philadelphia Eagle, Desean Jackson, and his mother Gayle Jackson, in 2009 after DeSean’s father, William Jackson, died shortly after being diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. The primary focus of the foundation is to raise awareness to Pancreatic Cancer . Information about other programs the foundation developed can be found at: http://www.deseanjacksonfoundation.org.
Since its inception, The DeSean Jackson Foundation has expanded its programs and services to address social issues that impact the lives of the most vulnerable children and families that have reached out to DeSean Jackson from across the nation after hearing of the 5′-10″ wide receiver with a big heart and compassion for others.
Gayle Jackson, President, of the DeSean Jackson Foundation, expressed humility and pride in the fact that the Bob Evans’ restaurants, in Delaware, are honoring her son for his efforts off the field.
Mrs. Jackson also stated that December 1st is DeSean’s 27th birthday; and, he will be at Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia, PA, where the Philadelphia Eagles (6-5) will be battling the Arizona Cardinals (7-4).
DeSean Jackson is honored to have Bob Evans acknowledge the passion and purpose that his family and foundation have built in his father’s memory. He encourages all of his fans to support Bob Evans in this endeavor and its operations as a community stakeholder with a sincere interest in the welfare of the community.
