GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- Colorado Mesa University Greek life students are trying to spread a feeling of community in Grand Junction. What better way to do it than with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches?
Students teamed up with the on-campus food distributor, Sodexo to make 2,000 PB&J’s. They’re working in shifts to get it all done and distributed Monday night. They say the community service project is just the beginning.
"The kids working here today, as the phrase goes, are the leaders of tomorrow. They're going to be out and about after college. There is this life that continues on and you wanna help people in the long run. It isn't going to end when the class ends or when the club ends,” said Sabrina Wiseman, CMU student and Sodexo Intern.
Sandwiches will go to The House, HomewardBound and other area shelters.
