Taco John's Teams Up with Jonah Bank to Host Month-Long Suicide Prevention CampaignFor the fourth consecutive year, Taco John’s and Jonah Bank of Wyoming are joining forces to fight the rising incidences of suicide.

During the entire month of May, participating Taco John’s and Jonah Bank locations will encourage customers to contribute to their campaign to support the suicide prevention efforts of local nonprofit groups, such as Grace For 2 Brothers, and similar organizations across Colorado and Wyoming. All of the money raised will be donated to these local organizations.

“Last year, thanks to the amazing support of our communities, we were able to raise $14,462.74 for Grace for 2 Brothers and several other state-wide suicide prevention programs,” said Jim Creel, CEO of Taco John’s International. “This year, Taco John’s has expanded its efforts to reach communities in Colorado, so we are hoping that 2020’s campaign is even more successful. It is our goal that this campaign will raise awareness to anyone who has been affected by suicide or is contemplating suicide, that there is a reason for hope. There are people who care. We care.”

“We are honored to have the opportunity to join Taco John’s in raising awareness while also providing additional funding to life-changing suicide prevention organizations,” said Gregg Jones, EVP/Cheyenne Branch President at Jonah Bank. “Suicide continues to increase in the U.S., so we hope to do even more this year to help battle this tragic epidemic.”
