Tryon Civitans sponsor Peanut Butter drive to benefit Religious Community Services


The Tryon Civitan Club, in conjunction with The UPS Store, is sponsoring their Sixth Annual Peanut Butter Drive to benefit Religious Community Services.

The Peanut Butter Drive will last the entire month of October.

RCS distributes peanut butter in food orders filled through their Food Pantry; last year RCS filled 3,167 food orders. They also use peanut butter and jelly as a backup meal in their Soup Kitchen when they run short of prepared food or when one of their stoves goes down.

With the support of our community, last year we delivered 729 jars of peanut butter, as well as 179 jars of jelly, to RCS and we hope to be able to deliver at least 1000 jars of peanut butter this year!

Peanut Butter can be dropped off at The UPS Store, 1822 South Glenburnie Rd between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm Monday through Friday and from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm on Saturdays.

For more information, please contact Mack Paul, Tryon Civitan Project Chairman, at 252-637-7500.
