City of Mesquite earns Community Impact award
The City of Mesquite received the 2017 Community Impact award from Sharing Life Community Outreach for the Spread the Love peanut butter and jelly drive that helps feed children during the summer. The Spread the Love campaign started in 2016. In the program’s two years, the campaign has raised enough donations of peanut butter and jelly to make more than 40,000 sandwiches. In addition, Spread the Love has raised thousands of dollars from corporate, civic and private supporters to purchase additional peanut butter and jelly. The program also supports Mesquite Social Services.
