THE WOODLANDS, TX -- Members of Cypress-Woodlands Junior Forum (CWJF) recently volunteered at one of its most popular service programs, the Humanitarian Peanut Butter Canning Project. Members enjoyed working a four hour shift on the assembly line as they prepared 6,336 jars of peanut butter for distribution. The Project’s goal this year is to produce one million jars of peanut butter for worldwide food banks and Feed America programs.

The state-of-the-art Peanut Butter Cannery, located at 16333 Hafer Road, Houston, is owned and operated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and has been a supporter of the Houston Food Bank for over a decade. Peanut butter is the most requested item, as it is nutritious and requires no refrigeration.

Cypress-Woodlands Junior Forum is an organization of women dedicated to providing volunteer services, leadership and philanthropy to enrich the communities in North Harris and South Montgomery Counties. CWJF partners with agencies, schools and corporations to fulfill identified needs in education, interaction with an aging population and support for people with disabilities.

CWJF is a 501(c) (3) non-profit assistance organization and a recognized chapter of Junior Forum, Inc. Since 1982, CWJF has been welcoming new members interested in serving the community with other like-minded women with a heart for service.
