YP Pantry 1 Year Anniversary Peanut Butter Party!

The Cleveland Foodbank is an organization that I believe in, and support in any way that I can. I enjoyed working there for three years, and then have continued to be involved with the organization after my career took me elsewhere. Their mission is something that really deserves the time, money, and effort of our community. Food is such a basic need, and one that many of us take for granted. For every $1 donated to the Cleveland Foodbank, they provide enough food for four nutritious meals in a local hunger center.

About a year ago, I joined their YP Council for the newly formed young professionals group--- called the YP Pantry. The YP Pantry provides opportunities for young professionals to learn about the Cleveland Foodbank and its mission, participate in volunteer experiences, and network. Well, the group is now celebrating its one year anniversary--- with a social hour and peanut butter party!

Join YP Pantry as we celebrate our first anniversary at The Woods on Thursday, September 19th from 5:30PM - 7:30PM!

It's Peanut Butter & Jelly time: As children get back into the swing of school, we will be collecting peanut butter to benefit the Cleveland Foodbank. As a great source of protein for growing kids, peanut butter is one of the "Super 6 Items" that is always in high demand at the Foodbank.

Donate two jars of peanut butter to receive a complimentary drink ticket good for house wine, draft beer, or well liquor. Don't have peanut butter? A $10 cash donation will also get you a drink ticket.

Enjoy discounted drinks and appetizers during happy hour until 6:30PM, as well as live acoustic guitar entertainment. Come out to meet other young professionals, learn about the YP Pantry and ways that you can get involved, and more.
