The Mayor is Calling on Everyone to Help Collect 50,000 Pounds of Peanut Butter

Peanut butter drive with Mayor

Pick up an extra jar of peanut butter, almond butter or sunflower spread and give to the annual Peanut Butter Drive. Your donation can make a huge difference in the lives of hungry people in Plano and Collin County. September is Hunger Action Month – a time to devote attention to children and families in need through the Plano Peanut Butter Drive. Join Mayor Harry LaRosiliere, City Council and the North Texas Food Bank for this month-long campaign to make a difference locally.

Employees and residents are asked to help achieve this year’s goal of collecting 50,000 pounds of peanut butter during Hunger Action Month. Everyone – civic and faith-based organizations, scouts, arts groups and businesses – can help! Drop-off sites for donations are:

  • Plano Municipal Center, 1520 K Avenue
  • Davis Library, 7501-B Independence Parkway
  • Carpenter Park Recreation Center, 6701 Coit Road
  • The Shops at Willow Bend (lower-level court), 6121 W. Park Boulevard
  • North Texas Food Bank Perot Family Campus, 3677 Mapleshade Lane

The Food Bank dropped off a very large collection bin to Municipal Center and other locations last week in anticipation of the Peanut Butter Drive. This means you can start bringing in regular-sized (16 oz.) jars of creamy or crunchy peanut butter (or similar spreads like almond or sunflower butter) NOW!

The Plano Promise to our youth asserts, “Our City will protect you, our schools will educate you and our community will nourish you.” This is one way you can help keep this promise: donate lots of jars of peanut butter.

Help reach the goal – 50,000 jars! Results will be announced in mid-October.
