Watch the New Peanut Butter Drive VIDEO

Peanut butter drive with Mayor

The fact that there are hungry children in such an affluent part of the world is hard to swallow. Join Mayor Harry LaRosiliere, City Council and the North Texas Food Bank for this month-long campaign. From September 1 to 30, all of Collin County will be of one mind – collect jars of peanutty-goodness for the annual Peanut Butter Drive.

The nearly 45,000 food insecure children in this county alone make events like this crucial, and make your participation vital. You can make a difference in the lives of so many as we recognize September as Hunger Action Month.

The goal this year is to collect 100,000 pounds of peanut butter and similar spreads for needy families. Everyone – civic and faith-based organizations, scouts, arts groups and businesses – can help! Drop-off sites are located throughout Plano, Allen, Celina, Wylie and Frisco. A few convenient spots are:

  • Plano Municipal Center
  • Haggard Library
  • Carpenter Park Recreation Center
  • The Shops at Willow Bend (lower-level court)
  • North Texas Food Bank Perot Family Campus, 3677 Mapleshade Lane

Look for the large metal collection bins and deposit your donations. Regular-sized (16 oz.) jars of creamy or crunchy peanut butter (or similar spreads like almond or sunflower butter) are preferred.

The Plano Promise to our youth asserts, “Our City will protect you, our schools will educate you and our community will nourish you.” Helping with the Collin County Peanut Butter Drive helps keep this promise – donate lots of jars of peanut butter.
