Wrapping up the holidays!

As the holiday season wraps up, we at PB&J want to take a moment to thank everyone who helped to make the season a little brighter for some families in the Charlottesville Area.  During our 2017 Holiday giving program, over 150 volunteers pitched in to pack bags of healthy groceries for 670 families in the Charlottesville area who are dealing with food insecurity.

Our Holiday Giving program hand delivers these bags with our area schools who connect Toy Lift families with the food. In Charlottesville public schools, more than 57% of the student population is eligible to receive Free & Reduced Meals; and in some neighborhoods, this number runs as high as 82%. We are so grateful to these volunteers for taking time out of their live to support this program to help feed our community!

A special thanks to Karyn Novakowski of Kin and Kid Photography for her beautiful images capturing the day!

#DearYoungPerson

You Are Loved #DearYoungPersonIn the wake of the events of August 12th, we are partnering with several other community organizations to support the #DearYoungPerson Campaign. This campaign is an effort to remind the youths of Charlottesville that there are a diverse set of adults who care about them and want to see them thrive. Read more about it here.

We were happy to host NBC29 for a brief story on the campaign, which you can see here.
