Children in the after-school program at the York Salvation Army will have plenty of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to eat thanks to the efforts of students, faculty and staff at Penn State York. The campus collected 305 pounds of the popular sandwich-making ingredients.

The Penn State York baseball team collected 140 pounds on their own with the rest of the campus donating the 165 pounds. A variety of jars, tubs, and other containers holding the ingredients of America’s most popular sandwich were delivered to the Salvation Army earlier this month. The Salvation Army’s after-school program feeds 50-75 children every day and peanut butter and jelly is one of their favorite sandwiches.

Ann Fetterman, instructor in English and director of the writing lab at Penn State York, spearheaded the peanut butter and jelly drive. The campus has been collecting peanut butter and jelly for the program for a number of years.
