PB & Js for Kids at Kate's

Many children on our community are going to bed hungry and Kate's Kitchen is lokking to change that fro the children who frequent our kitchen. PMN is looking for individuals, groups and businesses who are willing to make 50 PB&J sandwiches for Kate's Kitchen one day a month. The sandwiches will be distributed to the children at lunchtime so they can take them to eat at a later time when food may not be readily available. All kids love them and they don't need refrigeration. So if you can help out, please call Christine or Pheonix at 413-536-9109 X 11. Thanks!
