Peanut Butter & Jelly Campaign

The Peanut Butter and Jelly Campaign is in full swing. The Guardian ad Litem program is supporting children’s favorite foods, across the state, by having a campaign to collect these foods for local food banks.

In Stokes and Surry Counties you can contribute peanut butter and jelly at all of the local libraries, at the Chamber of Commerce in Mount Airy, Stokes Partnership for Children in King, Castle’s Deli, First Baptist Church in Pilot Mountain, Brown Mountain Baptist Church in Westfield, Trinity Episcopal Church in Mount Airy, the Surry County Clerk of Court, and through the Mount Airy and Sunrise Rotaries in Mount Airy.

The campaign will run through January 18, 2018. Help relive your childhood memories by giving to other children.

The lessons I expected to learn as a GAL were that children are resilient and that all children love their parents. That’s not what I learned, sometimes those things are true and sometimes they aren’t. What I have learned, continue to learn, is that children are people in their own right and not simply extensions of their parents or families. They aren’t waiting for their 18th birthday to become someone. They are all unique individuals deserving of respect and consideration with a right to have a say in their own stories.
