Laura Johnson caught up with Pat Drake, Publicity Chair with The Tryon Civitan Club to find out more about their Peanut Butter Drive. Listen to the interview here:
The Tryon Civitan Club, in conjunction with The UPS Store, is sponsoring their Ninth Annual Peanut Butter Drive to benefit Religious Community Services.
The Peanut Butter Drive will last the entire month of October.
RCS distributes peanut butter in food orders filled through their Food Pantry. Last year they distributed over 450,000 lbs of food, in addition to serving more than 65,000 meals to individuals. RCS also uses peanut butter and jelly as a backup meal in their Soup Kitchen if they run short of prepared food.
With the support of our community, we’re hoping to deliver 1000 jars of peanut butter. Jelly is also welcome.
To date, we’ve collected 188 jars of peanut butter and 25 jars of jelly.
Peanut Butter can be dropped off at The UPS Store, 1822 South Glenburnie Rd between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm Monday through Friday and from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm on Saturdays.
