Parent Organization: Contracted Independent Organizations

Spread the Love is an organization that orchestrates a large-scale event in November in which students come out and prepare peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and distribute them to the local Charlottesville community in need.

November 2008 marked the beginning of our organization; we donated over 3000 sandwiches throughout the surrounding area.  The following year, in November 2009, we experienced similar success with the preparation and distribution of 2557 sandwiches.  These sandwiches went to local organizations such as Hope Community Center, the Salvation Army, Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, 1st United Methodist Church, Hand-to-Hand, the PB&J Fund, and Christ Episcopal Church. The achievements continued throughout our most recent event in Fall 2012 where our donations reached out to Roanoke, Richmond, Northern Virginia, and of course our very own Charlottesville community.  With our main event falling right before Thanksgiving and the holidays, we know the sandwiches are always greatly appreciated!
