Help Fight Hunger in Rhode Island

Jar of peanut butterSince Washington Trust started its Peanut Butter Drive in 2001, we have collected almost 120 tons of peanut butter! That is enough peanut butter to make more than 3 Million Peanut Butter Sandwiches!

Why peanut butter? It's high in protein, loved by children and adults, and expensive for families in need.

One jar of peanut butter will make 16 sandwiches for a hungry family!
