On March 16, Life 88.5 listeners attending Winter Jam, an annual American music tour featuring contemporary Christian music artists of all genres, stopped by Life 88.5’s booth to drop off jars of peanut butter. The peanut butter went to FaithWork, an organization that helps feed students through a backpack program. Each week more than 1,400 backpacks are distributed to kids through FaithWork. There were a total of 885 jars of peanut butter collected, which represents over 13,275 meals! The number of jars they collected are nearly double what they received last year, increasing from 498 jars last year, to 885 this year.
Dee Dickey, Program Director of FaithWork said, “The peanut butter couldn’t have come at a better time. With Spring Break here, kids will definitely benefit from these backpacks over the break.”
