This yearís annual Krewe of Lul and Krewe of Des Allemands Parades saw St. Charles Parish Hospital celebrate the 20th Anniversary of its annual Peanut Butter Collection Drive.
The Hospitalís 20th year of collecting peanut butter resulted in a record amount of peanut butter donated along with an impressive total in cash donations.
Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of the community, the hospital was able to collect 581 jars of peanut butter along with $623.61 in cash. St. Charles Parish Hospital officals said the Peanut Butter Drive was an astounding success and they thank everyone who donated. The people of St. Charles Parish were integral to making the 2013 Peanut Butter Drive success and have made the last 20 years an unparalleled achievement in the parish at the same time helping many of the less fortunate in St. Charles Parish.
All donations collected through St. Charles Parish Hospitalís Annual Peanut Butter Drive are donated to the St. Charles Social Concerns. St. Charles Social Concerns provides approximately 50 food baskets monthly to St. Charles Parish residents, and peanut butter is a staple item in these baskets due to its high protein content and long shelf life.
