Help Feed Our Neighbors in Need!

Washington Trust has kicked off its 2021 Peanut Butter Drive and your support is needed now more than ever. The COVID-19 pandemic has ushered in a slew of unprecedented challenges for families, and the need in the community has skyrocketed. Our partners at the RI Community Food Bank have seen a 28% increase in the number of people that they serve each month!

Now is your chance to make a difference! Donate to the Peanut Butter Drive today to ensure that families have access to healthy, protein-rich, nutritious options like peanut butter. Just $5 helps the Food Bank secure 5 jars of peanut butter.

Donate Today!

Since launching the Drive in 2001, Washington Trust has collected more than 143 tons of peanut butter—enough to make more than 4.5 million peanut butter sandwiches. Help us raise enough to secure another 10 tons of peanut butter this year!
