Pete Robinson, founder of the Peanut Butter and Jelly Drive, spoke to the Niagara County Legislature on Tuesday on how this year’s drive is more important than ever, with so many family struggling due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  The Legislature donated two carts full of jars of peanut butter and jelly.

In addressing the Legislature, Mr. Robinson told lawmakers, “You have stood with us for the 11 years and as a matter of fact, this drive was started in this very building.  But what is even greater is outside of these walls, many of our Niagara County residents have given past the point of hurting so we can feed people who need it the most.”
