The PB&J Club at Valley Center High School gathers every Wednesday after school to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the homeless of Interfaith in Escondido.
Recently they took a field trip to Interfaith and toured the shelter, and even met some of the clients they’ve been providing for. The tour gave the students a glimpse of what it’s like to be homeless, and the services available for people in desperate need. Things we take for granted, like food, clean clothing, a bed to sleep on, a hot shower, a haircut, and an address to accept mail (hopefully from an employer interested in hiring them) are available, thanks to the compassion and generosity of many kind people. The ultimate goal is to help these folks get back on their feet!
“The PB&J Club is energized to continue their good work!” said their advisor, Robin Gilster.
