Peanut Butter for Carolina Kids

Coker College Commissioners are collecting 16 oz. or less jars of peanut butter for an important local charity, Carolina Kids. Although we'll be collecting peanut butter jars in the library until the cutoff date of October 1, the Commissioners will be with us today from 10am-5pm collecting and answering any questions you might have.

More about Carolina Kids:

"Carolina Kids, a non-profit organization in Darlington County, is teaming with school and community partners in an effort to ensure that students have food at times when school is not in session, weekends and breaks in the regular school year.

Carolina Kids have a food program titles Hunger Busters that provides bags of supplemental, kid friendly food to children who are "food insecure" over the weekend. When a child is "food insecure," he or she is at great risk of going hungry. To combat this problem, food is delivered weekly to participating schools when volunteers pack and distribute them.

Carolina Kids currently distribute 1,050 meals per week to children in public schools."
