This article was sent to me. I thought this would be an excellent idea for us to participate in our areas around the state. I am certain any of the food pantries would appreciate the help.
“Spread The Love: Peanut Butter & Jelly Drive” In these hard economic times, more Maine families are facing hunger than ever before. Today, 200,000 Mainers, including 1 in 4 children, struggle with hunger. Bangor Savings Bank is excited to launch its first-ever Peanut Butter and Jelly Drive. During the month of March, join Bangor Savings Bank in the fight against hunger by donating peanut butter and jelly. Stop in at your local Bangor Savings Bank branch and drop off a jar of peanut butter, jelly, or both. All donations will help families right in your community through your local food pantry.
Why peanut butter and jelly? Peanut butter is among one of the most expensive foods for food banks to purchase in large quantities. However, it is in high demand because it is rich with protein and also has monounsaturated and polyunsaturated oils, the “good fats.” And what’s peanut butter without jelly?
Christine Force, Good Shepherd Food-Bank’s Vice President of Fund Development and Strategic Initiatives says, “… thanks to this peanut butter & jelly drive, more families will have access to a protein-rich, non-perishable food, and it will make a big difference in their daily lives.” For more information or to find a branch nearest you, visit www.bangor.com.
Thank You, Bangor Savings Bank Community Matters More.”
