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!
