Parma peanut butter drive exceeded goal

January 18, 2012 by  

The peanut butter drive that was instigated by Sean Brennan, president of the Parma City Council, last month exceeded its goal of 1,000 jars of peanut butter by more than 800 jars of the protein packed food staple. Brennan had originally set a goal last month to collect 1,000 jars by New Year’s Eve and deliver the contributions to the All Faiths Pantry. The citizens in and around the Parma area not only helped meet that goal, they exceeded it by donating over 1,800 jars of peanut butter to Brennan’s peanut butter drive.

Parma citizens and individuals around the area who may want to help support a fundraiser or food drive, or even start one of their own, can do so in a number of ways. One way is by creating posters or a flyer, printing them, and distributing or posting them throughout the community. People interested in spreading the news about a fundraiser in the area may even want to use printing services provided by Parma print companies. Banner printing, poster printing and a number of other types of print advertisements can quickly spread the word and alert individuals in the area about a local fundraising event or food drive.

The citizens of Parma helped spread the love in a big way by also donating more than $1,000 to the cause. It was such a success that Brennan hopes to make it an annual event. He said that, in spite of the tough economy, many local citizens expressed a genuine desire to donate to the cause. One generous donor even anonymously contributed enough money for 500 jars of peanut butter.
