Trade peanut butter for new windshield wipers

Rogue Valley residents have until the end of today to get a free pair of wiper blades installed if they donate a 16-ounce jar of peanut butter to feed the hungry.

Through Thursday, Kelly's Automotive, located in Central Point and Grants Pass, will take the donations as part of an ongoing "Wipe Out Hunger" drive and install new wiper blades. All donations will go to Jackson County ACCESS and the Josephine County Food Bank.

Peanut butter is a high-protein food, which area food banks need. For more information, visit
