Way Scarff Ford/Isuzu delivers 1,612½ pounds of peanut butter to Auburn Food Bank

Way Scarff, owner of Way Scarff Ford/Isuzu in Auburn, left, and his sales manager, Jeff Mclaughlin, right, delivered 1,612½ pounds of peanut butter to the Auburn Food Bank on Wednesday morning. It was the Auburn dealership’s contribution to the Northwest Ford Dealers’ annual May peanut butter drive for local food banks.

Customers donated much of the tasty stuff, the dealership itself kicked in 25 pounds of it for every Ford sold last month, and the Ford Fund provided a case of peanut butter for every Ford sold in Washington, Idaho, Oregon, Montana and Alaska during May.

As Scarff explained, many Auburn children who rely on the reduced school lunch program during the school year may have nothing to eat in the summer, so their parents can drop by the food bank and pick up some peanut butter.

The dealership also contributed a $300 check to the food bank donated by its customers.
