Truett Gibbs-"When Mrs. Snider brought up the Pop tarts and peanut butter drive, I knew she was passionate about it, and it made me be passionate. That day I asked my Mom about doing the Canned Food Drive as a Cub Scout. She said that if I did bout 20 houses, I might get 3-4 responses. With this in mind, I typed a letter about what I was doing and gave a brief history of Snack Pak 4 Kids. I made 150 copies of each sheet and stapled them together by hand. United donated sacks and boxes for my cause. Thursday evening and Friday (April 17th and 18th), I went door to door to 150 houses with flyers and plastic sacks. I woke up Saturday morning around 9:00 and set out at 10:00, searching for donations. Any worry I had that I wouldn't get any feedback was soon gone when around 30-35% of houses had donations! The result was amazing! I could not thank these people who donated enough."

Truett collected 56 jars of peanut butter and 55 boxes of Pop tarts.
