"We take community seriously and have always gone the extra mile for our neighbors. Now we can streamline our efforts by joining forces with Project HOME," said PNB President Dan Comer.
PHILADELPHIA, PA, October 12, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Philadelphia Nut Butter Co. (PNB) announced today its Starting Line Sponsorship of Project HOME's 3rd annual "The Race HOME" on Saturday, October 14th, 2023. The event involves a 5K race and a 1 mile fun walk that runs along boathouse row in Philadelphia; the race starts at 8:30 AM, and the walk at 8:15 AM. Philadelphia Nut Butter's $7,500 donation secures the distinction of Starting Line Sponsor. The Race HOME's purpose is to raise funds and awareness of the Project HOME (PH) mission to end and prevent chronic street homelessness. Philadelphia Nut Butter says "Let's go!" to this mission and to going the distance with Project HOME.
Last month, PNB pledged a monthly donation of 200 extra-large jars of freshly-made, single-ingredient nut butters to a PH food pantry, the Helen Brown Community Center, located in North Philadelphia. The food pantry feeds hundreds of individuals and families every month.
"The partnership we have forged with Project HOME is very gratifying," said Philadelphia Nut Butter Company President Dan Comer. "Our desire to give back to our beloved Philadelphia has been fully realized through our partnership. Not only can we help to alleviate food insecurity with our nourishing nut butters but we can also help our neighbors find their way home again. Philadelphia has been home to my family and family business since my grandparents started a peanut snack business in the 1940s. We take community seriously and have always gone the extra mile for our neighbors. Now we can streamline our efforts by joining forces with Project HOME."
Project HOME's famous call to action is "None of us are home until all of us are home." To achieve their goal, community support is essential. "We believe in the transformational power of building relationships to end and prevent street homelessness in Philadelphia. Project HOME is thankful for our partnership with Philadelphia Nut Butter Co. and their Starting Line Sponsorship which furthers our mission," said Samantha Blatt, Manager of Annual Giving, Project HOME. "We know that street homelessness greatly impacts a person's physical and mental health. This race will flag the role that wellness plays in an individual's journey towards permanent, supportive housing. Philadelphia Nut Butter's support makes all the difference on this journey."
