Spread a Little Love Peanut Butter Drive Extended for One More Week
Due to the cancellation of last week's meeting, the Peanut Butter Drive has been extended for one more week.
Ramona Dow extends her thanks to everyone who has donated so far.
"Wow!  What a generous Rotary Club we have!  During the first week of our two week drive we have collected 53 jars ( various sizes) and $104 in cash to buy more peanut butter.  Our goal of 150 jars is well within reach.  Funds collected thus far will buy us an additional 40-50 jars (16 oz) so we are 2/3 of our way there!"
The collected peanut butter will be donated to Crossroads House, Seacoast Family Food Pantry, Operation Blessing, The Salvation Army, the Greenland Food Pantry and End 68 Hours of Hunger.
Rotary Service and Engagement
