Help Feed Our Neighbors in Need!

For 22 years, Washington Trust has hosted our signature Peanut Butter Drive to help support local hunger relief agencies as they work to combat food insecurity in our communities.

The drive began in the spring of 2001 as a way to help restock the shelves of food pantries after the holiday season with a healthy, family-friendly pantry staple that is loved by people of all ages- peanut butter!

With the support of our employees, customers and community members, Washington Trust has collected the equivalent of more than 156 tons of peanut butter since the drive’s inception. That’s enough to make more than 4.9 million peanut butter sandwiches!

We look forward to your support of our annual peanut butter drive in 2023- check back here for updates!
