Diamond Hill United Methodist Church of Cos Cob and Little Pub of Greenwich to host the Second Annual Peanut Butter and Jelly Challenge to Benefit Neighbor to Neighbor Greenwich.
First inspired by a friendly competition between Diamond Hill and Little Pub to see who could gather the most donations of peanut butter and jelly, the 2nd annual “Peanut Butter and Jelly Challenge” runs the entire month of April, and helps provide food to Neighbor to Neighbor.
The food drive also assists in raising awareness of Neighbor to Neighbor’s pivotal role as a support center in the community for food, clothing, and basic living essentials for people in need.
Reached by phone, General Manager of Little Pub said the partnership with the church next door inspired a little competition. “If they win, we will give them our wings. If we win, we get eternal salvation,” he joked.
Patrons of Little Pub also have the option to purchase peanut butter or jelly and have it added to their bill. Bill Taylor, general manager of Little Pub said customers can ask their server to add a jar of peanut butter or jelly to their bill and Little Pub will take care of the rest.
Drop boxes for the peanut butter and jelly will be located at both Diamond Hill United Methodist Church, 521 E. Putnam Avenue in Cos Cob and at Little Pub.
