Parma is spreading a little love this holiday season

December 22, 2011 by  

Sean Brennan, City Council President in Parma, is spreading the love this holiday season as he aims to collect at least 1,000 jars of peanut butter by New Years’ Eve day. Brennan’s peanut butter drive was spearheaded when he read about the growing demand for peanut butter at food banks in the area. Just this year alone, peanut butter prices have risen an astounding 75 percent. Peanut butter is a high source of protein and is often a staple for families with young children, as well as other individuals.

Members in and around the community might want to help support the peanut butter drive by hanging a poster, printing flyers, or spreading word about the drive to local and surrounding businesses. The holiday season is an excellent time for fundraising events or other charitable activities. Print companies in and around Parma can provide any number of printing services, such as brochures, banner printing, flyers, and more.

Brennan aims to deliver 1,000 jars of peanut butter to the All Faiths Pantry by December 31. He is asking individuals in and around the Parma area to bring a jar of peanut butter by one of the drop off stations or to make a monetary donation of $5 in support of the peanut butter drive. Donations can be dropped off at the Parma hospital, any public library in the city, or at the Parma City Hall Council office. Checks can be made payable to the ‘Parma Peanut Butter Drive.’
