HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ -- It was the culmination of the peanut butter and jelly drive as Hasbrouck Heights music students and their families assembled peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the homeless at Meals with a Mission.
The school music organization collected donations with a peanut butter and jelly drive throughout the month of February. They collected zipper sandwich bags, brown paper lunch bags, individual snacks and peanut butter and jelly.
Six parents, a few siblings and about one dozen students assembled over 300 sandwiches which will be distributed to the homeless through Meals with a Mission in Garfield, NJ.
This was the second of three community service projects under the umbrella Band Together for a Cause. The first was in November, delivering Thanksgiving baskets with the Basket Brigade in Hackensack. The final project will be for the Hackensack Riverkeepers Slam Dunk the Junk Clean up in late April.
