Bring Your Peanut Butter Jar to Support a Worthy Cause

Utah Jazz

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – Attention, basketball fans! The Utah Jazz, in partnership with Chick-fil-A and the Will Dance for Kids Project, are calling upon supporters to join forces in making a positive impact. On November 2nd, as the Jazz go head-to-head against the Orlando Magic, fans are invited to bring 16 oz. jars of peanut butter to the game, which will be used to fill barrels for the Utah Food Bank.

A Win-Win for Jazz Fans

Not only will your generous donation make a difference in the lives of hungry children, but you will also be rewarded for your kindness. For each 16 oz. jar of peanut butter donated, fans will receive a free Chick-fil-A food card redeemable for a regular Chick-fil-A sandwich or an 8-count nuggets. Please note that a ticket to the game is required to participate in this charitable endeavor.

The collection barrels, manned by members of the Will Dance for Kids Project, will be conveniently positioned just inside the Delta Center entrances starting at 5:20 pm.

Previous Successes and Future Goals

Utah Jazz fans have proven their dedication to supporting their community time and time again. Over the past five years, enthusiastic fans have contributed more than 5,000 jars of peanut butter and over $5,000 in cash donations to the Will Dance for Kids Project. These contributions have benefited the Utah Food Bank’s Kids Café and Mobile School Pantry. The Kids Café fed over 477,000 meals to children in after-school programs last year, while the Mobile School Pantry helps distribute food to 67 local schools and their families on a monthly basis.

The Will Dance for Kids Project utilizes the power of dance and dance competitions to combat childhood hunger. Since its establishment in 2011, the project has collected an impressive 64,000 jars of peanut butter and raised over $500,000 for the Utah Food Bank.

Join forces with your fellow Jazz fans and make a significant impact on the fight against childhood hunger. Let’s show the world that, together, we can create positive change. Plus, don’t miss out on the exciting festivities sponsored by Chick-fil-A, including hot air balloons, a DJ on the plaza, and beloved Chick-fil-A cow mascots roaming the concourse. It’s going to be a night to remember!
