Peanut Butter & Jelly Drive

Spreading Kindness One Jar at a Time!

Together, let’s spread kindness and make a difference in our communities. This September, help relieve food insecurity by donating jars of peanut butter and jelly during Bangor Savings Bank’s annual Peanut Butter & Jelly Drive! All donations will be distributed to local food insecurity programs in our communities – from food pantries to backpack programs to local shelters, and more.

Since 2012, the Bangor Savings Bank Peanut Butter & Jelly Drive has collected more than 98,000 jars and donated them to those in need. That’s over 98,000 children, families, and individuals impacted by your donations!

Together, help us exceed our milestone of collecting over 100,000 jars for our communities. Go nuts and have fun!

Peanut butter, a protein-rich food item, is too often in short supply and high demand at local food insecurity programs. And what’s a more classic pair than peanut butter and jelly? Something as simple as donating a jar can make a big difference to a neighbor in need. And with school back in session, we can support our local schools and backpack programs by donating a jar of peanut butter or jelly!

Here’s How It Works

Drop Off Jars of Peanut Butter & Jelly

Jars of peanut butter or jelly can be dropped off at any Maine

or New Hampshire branch during operating hours from Friday, September 1st through Saturday, September 30th.

We’ll Match Your Donation

You (peanut) butter believe it! For each jar received, Bangor Savings Bank will donate one additional jar of peanut butter or jelly to local food insecurity programs!

We’re better together when our customers, local businesses, and employees support our communities.

Thank you for helping to make a difference for those in need. Let’s spread kindness with the PB&J Drive!

In light of peanut allergies, alternatives to peanut butter are also welcome!
