Mesquite, TX - July 11, 2018 - In celebration of National Be Someone Day, Mesquite congregations throughout the city will join together on Sunday, July 22, for a special day of giving. National Be Someone Day challenges each of us to take ten seconds to make a difference. In response, faith leaders throughout Mesquite are encouraging their congregations to bring a jar of peanut butter and/or jelly to church on July 22 to support the City of Mesquite's Spread the Love campaign.
The Spread the Love campaign accepts donations of peanut butter and jelly as well as financial contributions during the spring and summer months to help feed children in food insecure families during the summer when free or reduced school lunches are unavailable. Donation bins are available at several City facilities and special events as well. All donations go to the two food pantries in Mesquite, Sharing Life Community Outreach and Mesquite Social Services, for distribution.
