Western Academy Charter School has been collecting peanut butter and jelly for the Palm Beach County Food Bank as a community service project.
This is the Parent Teacher Committee’s first community service project of the school year. The first drop-off weighed 144 pounds. The food drive continued through the month of September with the goal set to deliver 500 pounds.
There is a high need at food banks this time of year. All donations from this collection will stay in Palm Beach County to help feed some of the 64,000 children who go to bed hungry each night. The children love PB&J and it is a great source of protein.
Western Academy Charter School is located at 650 Royal Palm Beach Blvd., Suite 300, in Royal Palm Beach. For more info., call (561) 792-4123 or visit www.westernacademycharter.com.
