Please contribute to the Peanut Butter Challenge by bringing peanut butter to the Skagit County Democrats' Headquarters by Friday, May 6, open Tuesday through Friday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. If possible, buy Jiff or Adams brand because they are made by Union workers. The Northwest Washington Central Labor Council is collecting peanut butter for the Whatcom and Skagit Food Banks in conjunction with the National Association of Letter Carrier's Annual Food Drive, which is May 14.
The statistics are shocking: One in six people in Skagit and Whatcom Counties must rely on food banks. Most have jobs but don't earn enough to support themselves and their families. Peanut Butter is an excellent source of protein with a long shelf life. Together we can make a difference and help stamp out hunger!
