Peanut Butter Drive Success

This year’s Peanut Butter Drive turned out to be a great success.  Originally we had set a goal to collect 250 jars of peanut butter.  We had to keep increasing the goal!  We are proud to announce that this yesterday we dropped off over 800 jars of peanut butter to Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee. We had been collecting the past 3 weeks.  Our PB drive was even featured in the Daily Times newspaper.

Our mission is to SAVE LIVES!  Not only do we want to accomplish our mission by teaching the valuable life saving skills of CPR but also by doing charitable work that can help others.  Every year we pick a project to help save the lives of others.  This year we chose to collect Peanut Butter for 2nd Harvest Food Bank.  Peanut butter is a highly sought after product for food banks as it has a good combination of carbs, fats, proteins and nutrients as well as a good shelf life.  We offered our customers discounts for brining in jars and worked with past customers to help collect.  Some of our collection spots were schools, dance studios, hair salons, gyms and individuals.

It feels so good to be able to make a small difference in our local community.  We teach heart health in our CPR classes and that includes encouraging others to exercise their hearts by reaching down and lifting up others.

We are all ready looking forward to next year and what projects we can get involved with to help our community.  On Jan 23 & 24 we will be offering a community CPR class at The Health Living Expo for only $10 at the Knoxville Convention Center.  All proceeds to benefit our local American Heart Association.

Learn CPR-Save Lives!
