WESTERLY — The Washington Trust Company is holding its 19th annual Peanut Butter Drive through the end of April to benefit the Rhode Island Community Food Bank and local food pantries across Rhode Island and Southeastern Connecticut.

Donations of jars of peanut butter can be made at any Washington Trust location. People can also visit to make an online donation to the Rhode Island Community Food Bank. A $5 donation helps the food bank buy four jars of peanut butter.

Additionally, Washington Trust will collect peanut butter at a free community shredding event on Saturday, April 13, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., at various Washington Trust branches. Visit for more information.
