Hunger Task Force's tower of peanut butter
food drive collected more than 33,000 jars of peanut butter
MILWAUKEE-An incredible amount of peanut butter was collected for Hunger Task Force by the workers at local Walgreen's and fire crews at some 60 fire stations.
There was a big celebration at the Walgreen store at 7171 N. Teutonia near Good Hope which is the location that collected the most items.
Both organizations have collected peanut butter since early January and Walgreen's offered special deals on peanut butter so shoppers could purchase and donate on the spot. The public were invited to stop by their local fire station and make donations as well.
