WE NEED YOUR HELP!      Now until June 8th

The Rock River Valley Pantry, in partnership with our 10-year presenting sponsor, Gerber Collision & Glass, is collecting 20,000 jars of peanut butter to help families throughout the summer.


Why so many jars? During the school year, all students in the Rockford Public School District are eligible for free lunch. However, as schools go on summer break, parents will turn to us so their kids won’t have to go without.

Our annual Peanut Butter Rally, held every April and May, is a community-wide effort. Can we count on you? Whether it’s creamy or crunchy, large or small, please consider donating this protein-rich staple to help this vulnerable population. Monetary donations are also welcome as it allows us to purchase jars at wholesale prices. A $20.00 donation = case of 12 jars (18 oz. ea)

We are also collecting Jelly (Plastic bottles only, please – NO GLASS)

Contact us to schedule your peanut butter and jelly drive; typically, the most effective drives run 2-3 weeks.
