MEDFORD, Ore. – A local auto shop wants to help area food banks by trading service for peanut butter.
This month, Kelly’s Auto Service in Medford is giving a free pair of windshield wipers to anyone who brings in a 16 ounce jar of peanut butter. All of the food will be donated to ACCESS, and the Josephine County Food Bank. So far, they have received 400 jars of peanut butter.
“We’re only trading wiper blades for peanut butter, but some customers have brought in other canned goods, not perishables, anything’s welcome,” said Kelly’s Auto Service Manager Jay Wolfman. “It’s been a tough year for a lot of people, food-wise, the food banks are really well tapped, so anything people want to bring in we’ll make sure they get to the right places so people can get food.”
Kelly’s Auto Service will continue to accept the food through the end of the month. They hope to raise close to 500 jars of peanut butter by the end of the month.
