5th annual RIIL Peanut Butter Express Challenge
Hi! We are the members of the Rhode Island Interscholastic League (RIIL) Student Advisory Board, and we need your help! Our board, with the help of the RIIL, is hosting our 5th annual Peanut Butter Express Challenge. This challenge serves to support the Rhode Island Community Food bank through the collection of peanut butter. Just one jar can make 16 sandwiches! We are asking that you help promote this statewide drive in your school. Attached you will find a kit of information about this community service opportunity, including suggestions for how to go about collecting the peanut butter, as well as flyer templates and other ways to promote the Peanut Butter Express. You have from now until April 10th to help us beat last year’s record collection of 2,082 pounds of peanut butter and to help beat hunger in Rhode Island!
