The campaign is now complete, and we are tallying our donations to see if we exceeded our goal of 10,000 jars!

Thank you to everyone who helped us help food banks across the state! 

About the PB&J Campaign

In addition to its child advocacy work, North Carolina Guardian ad Litem (GAL) hosts the Peanut Butter & Jelly Campaign, an annual statewide service project. Last year, GAL districts across North Carolina collected over 18K jars of peanut butter and jelly for food pantries all over the state.  Now in its third year, the PB&J campaign is aiming to donate 10,000 jars!

The PB&J campaign runs from mid-October to January, coinciding with Make a Difference Day, Giving Tuesday, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, and the MLK Day of Service. Any interested community member can participate in this service project, including local businesses, places of worship, schools--as well as those already involved with GAL, including staff, volunteers, and friends and supporters of the program.
