For the past four years, Hi-Line Ford has orchestrated a peanut butter drive to benefit needy families in the area. Hi-Line Ford raises awareness to the cause with advertisements with local media and by contacting local dealers for donations. This year, through efforts made by Hi-Line Ford and the Valley County Food Bank, there was 204 pounds of peanut butter donated.

Peanut butter is an important staple for local families to have, especially during the summer time when children are out of school. The food bank gives away more peanut butter during this time of year as it's easy for children to make peanut butter sandwiches.

The Food Bank's Pat Hallet stated that currently there are around 100 families in the area who receive aid from the food bank, and urges the community to donate using the collection boxes at Reynolds and Albertsons.
