Campus collects 326 pounds of sandwich fixings

March 21, 2012

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 community donated 326 pounds of the popular sandwich-making ingredients during the month of February, topping last year's 305-pound mark.

Penn State York's baseball team collected the most, gathering 177 pounds on their own; the rest of the campus donated 149 pounds. The ingredients were delivered to the Salvation Army’s after-school program, which feeds about 100 children every day.

Ann Fetterman, instructor in English and director of the writing lab at Penn State York, spearheaded the drive, which has taken place at Penn State York for several years.
