Sixty volunteers. Sixty minutes. And 4,325 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches made for charity.
Singing and dancing volunteers in purple t-shirts worked to put together as many sandwiches as possible in an hour.
The group of fell short of its 5,000-sandwich goal last week but was happy they were able to help feed women and families at UMOM New Day Centers.
The Which Wich Cares Foundation, part of the sandwich restaurant chain, launched Project PB&J to provide peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to people in need.
Project PB&J is conducted annually in cities across the United States on National PB&J Day. Which Wich partnered with Sysco Food Services of Arizona to have volunteers make the sandwiches under a tight deadline.
The Project PB&J slogan was #SpreadTheLove, which in this case was spread to UMOM, which shelters homeless families.
