WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – A man from White Plains is on a mission to help New York City’s homeless, one peanut butter and jelly sandwich at a time.
WCBS 880’s Sean Adams reported, in 2012, P.J. Collins had an epiphany and started 10,000 PB&Js.
“Making 50 sandwiches, it would take me a while without help and I’d drive down to the Lower East Side and go to Tompkins Square Park. For a lot of people, the food – they see us coming and their hands go out. They’re starving. But for just as many people, this is about companionship,” Collins told Adams.
