Mesquite, TX – April 3, 2018 – Last night, the City of Mesquite kicked off its annual “Spread the Love” peanut butter and jelly drive on National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day. Mesquite AMBUCS presented the City Council with a $2,000 donation to support the campaign. The Spread the Love campaign encourages the donation of peanut butter and jelly as well as financial contributions to help feed children in food insecure families during the summer when free or reduced school lunches are unavailable. Visit www.cityofmesquite.com/SpreadTheLove for more information.
Donations will be accepted throughout the spring and summer months at several City facilities and special events. All donations are distributed by the two food pantries in Mesquite, Sharing Life Community Outreach and Mesquite Social Services, to families in need. The campaign ends August 17 at the free Back to School Bash at City Lake Aquatic Center.
