Dear Parents, Students, Faculty and Staff:
We are pleased to announce that we will be partnering with the Lowcountry Food Bank and ABC 4’s PB&J Blitz sponsored by Synovus Bank. The PB&J Blitz is a unique experience for students to help their community while instilling a sense of volunteerism, leadership, and community in area youth. By participating in this campaign, our students will learn hunger statistics, poverty and the overarching effects of hunger on health in our region and county.
How it works: Each week two schools will go head to head in the PB&J Blitz. Through this week long campaign, each school will try to collect the most peanut butter, jelly and online donations. The school with the highest ratio of participation (pounds and funds collected/ amount of students) will be proclaimed the winner at the Friday Night Rival game.
Our students have the opportunity of winning $250 for Berkeley High and an additional $1,250 if our school is the grand winner for the entire campaign!
Last year 15 Lowcountry Schools donated a combined total of 28,439 pounds of peanut butter and jelly through in person and online funds!
Our drive will take place from a Wednesday October 2 through October 9 to allow time to weigh donations and calculate impact of online donations. The winner will be announced at our football game on October 11. To donate, create your own fundraising page here https://pbj19.everydayhero.com/us/berkeley or bring in peanut butter and jelly to school (no glass please).
We hope you will help our students participate in this event and help us win $1,250 for our school as a grand prize!
