Plumas Bank launches local peanut butter drive
Saturday, May 17, 2014 — Plumas Bank has recently launched its first regional peanut butter drive, which will run May 1 to May 30 throughout Plumas Bank’s service area, consisting of 11 branch offices in the counties of Plumas, Lassen, Modoc, Shasta, Placer and Nevada.
Plumas Bank President and Chief Executive Officer, Andrew J. Ryback, remarked, “In many ways, America is the land of plenty. But for many people, hunger is a very real struggle. Some believe that the problems associated with hunger are confined to small pockets of society, or certain neighborhoods, but the reality is much different.
“Right now, many people in our own communities are at risk of hunger. These are often hard-working adults, children and seniors who simply cannot always make ends meet and may be forced to go without food.
