Peanut Butter & Jam Slam 2017 - Bennington
Join this event page for updates, participating collection sites, and more fun! Get your friends, family, and workplace on board, too.
We are excited to announce the 1st Annual Peanut Butter & Jam Slam March 20 – April 3, 2017. Since most community food drives are run during the holiday season, our goal is to collect 1000 jars of peanut butter and jelly to replenish local food pantries during a time of year when donations are less robust. This year’s donations will be directed to BROC, The Kitchen Cupboard (Greater Bennington Interfaith Community Services), and HIS Pantry (Sacred Heart St. Francis de Sales Food Shelf)
We need your help to make this effort matter! If you would like to participate, please contact Sheilah.Printz@vermont.gov no later than Friday, March 4, 2017. Participating businesses and organizations will be listed on this Facebook event page and in the Bennington Banner as a collection site. We'll provide you with a media kit, and we'll pick up donations at the end of the collection period. You may also drop off your jars of peanut butter and jelly at the Vermont Department of Health between March 20 and April 3, 2017 during regular business hours. Please, no expired or homemade items.
Help us help the community! Spread the word & start collecting peanut butter & jelly today.
