Peanut Butter Drive to Fight Hunger

The Valley County Food Bank received 204 pounds of peanut butter during Hi-Line Ford's peanut butter drive last year. The hope is to exceed that number during this year's drive. Pictured left to right are: Kathy Ramsbacher, Josh Sillerud, Cecilia Boreson, Marylyn Smith, Bob Smith, Pat Hallet and Laurie Koessl.

For the third year in a row, Josh Sillerud and Hi-Line Ford are asking the community to come together and buy peanut butter at their next several trips to the grocery store.

In coordination with the Ford Focus on Child Hunger campaign, Sillerud has decided to hold a peanut butter drive to help our community's children not go hungry once school is out for the year. Peanut butter is a main staple and unfortunately it can be expensive to those families who have fallen on hard times.

Donations of jars are being accepted at Hi-Line Ford, Albertsons and Reynolds through Monday, April 23. For every jar donated, Sillerud will match jar for jar, up to 100 jars, by purchasing additional jars locally.

All donations will be made to the Valley County Food Bank, which serves over 100 families on a monthly basis. When school is out for the summer, it's an unfortunate reality that one in five students are underfed or go hungry as families don't always have access to school nutrition and need help with kid-friendly food staples.

Last year, over 240 pounds of peanut butter were donated to the Valley County Food Bank during this drive and Sillerud hopes to exceed that number this year.

For any questions, contact Sillerud at 406-228-2141.
