Mesquite Fire Department promotes Spread the Love PB&J donation locations

5-15-17 Mesquite Fire Dept loads PBJ donations on stretcher (900x675)

Mesquite, TX – May 15, 2017 – With lights, sirens and lots of peanut butter and jelly, the Mesquite Fire Department reminded the public of the Spread the Love donation locations. Today, Mesquite firefighters donated cases of PB&J at the Mesquite Municipal Center to help feed children during the summer who live in food insecure homes.

The Spread the Love campaign collects PB&J as well as financial contributions to benefit the food pantries of Sharing Life Community Outreach (SLCO) and Mesquite Social Services who redistribute all donations. SLCO Director Teresa Jackson said, “Donations do not need to be of a significant amount, because each jar of peanut butter and jelly has a significant impact for those children in need.” Visit for details.

The public can donate peanut butter and jelly at these city facilities and special events:
