The City of Plano is hosting its 5th annual Spreading Hope Peanut Butter Drive during the month of September to benefit North Texas Food Bank.
The North Texas Food Bank is a top-ranked nonprofit hunger-relief organization with its primary distribution center relocating to the new Perot Family Campus in Plano this month. Each day, North Texas Food Bank provides access to more than 190,000 meals for hungry children and families through various programs and partners. Through the Spreading Hope Peanut Butter Drive, Plano residents are able to play a part in closing the hunger gap.
Plano Mayor Harry LaRosiliere has challenged Plano residents to donate 50,000 pounds of peanut butter by the end of the month. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has already donated 2,000 pounds of peanut butter so the countdown is well on its way. The results will be announced at the end of October.
Mayor LaRosiliere said, “By donating a jar of peanut butter, you’re helping someone in your community, people that you might even know and that you just don’t realize are in that situation.”
Plano and North Texas area residents are able to drop off their plastic jars of peanut butter to any of the following locations during the month of September:
