Spreading the Love- One Jar of PB&J at a Time!

For a third year in a row, supporters across the Delaware Valley showed hunger they mean business by spreading the love one click and one jar of PB&J at a time.

From February 1st through Valentine’s Day, fans were urged to’like’ the Philabundance Facebook page in exchange for a peanut butter or jelly donation from our awesome partners at ShopRite. In just 14 days, we got enough Facebook likes to have ShopRite donate 3400 jars of PB&J! And supporters didn’t stop showing love there. They dropped off more than 1,000 Ilbs of PB&J at our warehouses. Way to go!

To show our thanks we offered supporters that joined our event on facebook or donated PB&J a chance to win a $500 US Airways Voucher or 7 night stay in the Caribbean from Elite Island Resorts. Congratulations to our winners, Robin Greenspan, Jessica Merlock and Carol Mellor for being drawn as the winners.

On behalf of the many families in need in our region, Philabundance would like to say thank you to our supporters for their overwhelming generosity during our Spread the Love campaign. The richness in protein offered by peanut butter make it a staple item in the communities we serve but unfortunately, the price has increased by 30% due to weather conditions and failing crops. The success of this campaign helps us ensure that we can provide more of this delicious and nutritious item to families who need it most. And we couldn’t have achieved that without you!
