BIG HAIRY AUDACIOUS GOALS! =BHAG
The plan for Friday is for the Peanut Butter Plan Crew to make at least THREE THOUSAND PBJ’s to be passed out Saturday at an amazing event called Dolls for Daughters, Toys for Boys Toyshop! There will be several thousand poor individuals at this toy giveaway and we want them to go home with some food as well.
To prepare 3000 sandwiches, I estimate that we need 300 loaves of bread, and at least fifty volunteers making sandwiches for three hours. The food bank that donates bread usually has approximately 150 loaves of bread for us. Hopefully they will come through as usual. We have a big ask of the volunteers and their friends: we need a ton of peanut butter and jelly, and about 150 loaves of bread brought to our event to begin the production at 6:30 p.m. Friday!
The Garden has a lovely facility, and it will be great to be hosting our 2nd Peanut Butter Plan event there. We will be bringing adult drinks, and ask that people coming bring some snacks and simple appetizers so that we may sustain the frenzy necessary.
Quesadillas, Guacamole and chips and salsa, mini tuna sandwiches, chicken fingers, cut veggies and dip,etc.
Of course, we can also divvy up the 3001st PBJ that we make and all have a bite!
Our group is invited to help on 12/6 when toys and food and toiletries are passed out
Details on the event on 12/6 are below:
