BEND, Ore. - Robberson Ford, in conjunction with Ford Focus on Child Hunger, will be collecting peanut butter to support the additional summer demand for kid-friendly foods at NeighborImpact, a 21 Cares for Kids partner.
The peanut butter drive, which runs from June 14-21, will support the increased demand for this expensive staple during the summer months, when many children lose access to school nutrition programs.
To make a donation, bring jars of peanut butter to Robberson Ford in Bend and Prineville at anytime during the week. Robberson Ford will donate one jar of peanut butter on your behalf for every oil change during the 14th-21st of June at the Quicklane Center's in both Prineville and Bend.
For every Ford purchased from Robberson Ford during the week, Robberson Ford will donate a case of peanut butter on your behalf! Newport Avenue Market in Bend and Erickson's Thriftway in Prineville will also be collecting dollars for jars of peanut butter all week long.
The peanut butter drive will conclude with one massive collection day at Newport Avenue Market in Bend on June 21st from 1pm – 6pm and in Prineville at Erickson's Thriftway on Friday June 20th from 2pm to 7pm. During these events peanut butter will be available to purchase right at the grocery store and ready to go to the local food bank.

"Our number one commitment has always been to help provide food for those in need, including children, and to assist in strengthening our community. We are excited to be part of the Robberson Ford's focus on child hunger peanut butter drive," and John Amodeo, Store Manager of Erickson's in Prineville agreed, "Helping the kids and families of Crook County get a much needed nutritious meal makes me smile.
