The Roundup -

Peanut Butter Drive

 

Submitted by Marissa Schoepp Eagle Country Ford, in conjunction with the Ford Focus on Hunger, is joining other Ford dealers throughout the Northwest, to collect jars of peanut butter supporting the summer demand for kid-friendly foods at Richland County Boys and Girls Club and Richland County Food Bank. The peanut butter drive, which runs from May 14 - 21 is in response to the increased demand for this important staple during the summer months, when many children lose access to school nutrition programs. It is estimated nearly 24 percent of children are unsure how their next meal will be provided and when school is out during the summer months, local food banks carry a larger responsibility to feed kids. Peanut butter is an important protein staple to feed kids during these summer months, but is difficult to acquire in adequate quantities. To make a donation, bring jars of peanut butter or your cash contributions to Eagle Country Ford at 215 East Main Sidney, between the hours of 8 a.m.-5 p.m. there will also be a Focus in Reynolds grocery store where donations can be purchased. Last year's drive collected nearly 30,000 lbs. of peanut butter, feeding kids throughout the summer. Those unable to donate in person can also give online at www.fordfeedskids.org by clicking on the food bank of their choice to make a cash donation. This drive is part of a five-state campaign in the Pacific Northwest by Ford dealers to support their community food banks and to make sure no child goes hungry this summer.
