| Peanut Butter & Jelly for the Troops|
| Volunteer Tim Heckerman is Collecting Peanut Butter and Jelly.|
Show your Patriotic Spirit by donating some Peanut Butter & Jelly for our Troops. All of the PB&J that we collect will be taken to March Air Force base in Riverside. There is a group of volunteers that make hundreds of PB&J sandwiches for our troops that are coming home from the Middle East. We also make PB&J sandwiches that are given to the soldiers for their very long plane ride to the Middle East.
