Washington Trust to Host Community Skate Day as Part of Peanut Butter Drive

Westerly, Rhode Island... Washington Trust will hold a “Community Skate Day” as part of its 12th Annual Peanut Butter Drive on Saturday, March 17, 2012 from 12:00 PM until 2:00 PM (Rain date will be Sunday March 18, 2012) at the Washington Trust Community Skating Center in Westerly. Each person who donates a jar of peanut butter, or makes a five dollar donation, will receive free admission to the Skating Center. All donations will benefit the Jonnycake Center of Westerly. Free refreshments are available courtesy of McQuade’s Marketplace and Bess Eaton. Free raffle prizes will be awarded throughout the afternoon courtesy of Washington Trust.

“The Community Skate Day is a great way for families to donate peanut butter to help their neighbors and have some fun at the same time,” said Joseph MarcAurele, Washington Trust Chairman, President & CEO.

Washington Trust will donate all of the peanut butter and money from this event to the Jonnycake Center of Westerly. “Peanut butter is a staple in the Jonnycake Food Pantry, especially for families with children. It is a great source of protein that is easy to both store and prepare. It is so important that we always have it available to hand out,” said Elizabeth Pasqualini, Executive Director of the Jonnycake Center of Westerly.
