It’s Peanut Butter Jelly Time

Yesterday was a good day for peanut butter and jelly fans at Interfaith Partnership for the Homeless (IPH).Each year the College of Saint Rose hosts PB and Jams, and event that encourages students come together and prepare thousands of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to donate to homeless shelters in the Albany region.   More than 3,000 sandwiches were made last year by the students.  This year the bar was set even higher, hoping to reach a goal of 3,500 sandwiches.

IPH was given more than 500 sandwiches to serve at the Albany Emergency Shelter and Sheridan Hollow Drop-In Center. These sandwiches help IPH reach its goal to feed as many people in need of a meal each day.  Annually, IPH serves more than 40,000 meals to those in need, so donations like these sandwiches are exciting and very much appreciated.

The staff, and more importantly, the guests of IPH, are thankful for all the members of the Saint Rose community that helped prepare the sandwiches.
