PB&J Challenge Provides 1,600 Sandwiches for Homeless and Hungry

More than 60 Seton Hall student-athletes turned out for the third PB&J Challenge that benefits Eva's Village, a non-profit organization that assists the homeless and hungry.

Over 1,600 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches were made by the student-athletes and sent to Eva's Village in Paterson.

Eva's Village is a non-profit social services organization that provides a wide range of services for the poor in NJ, including food, shelter, substance abuse treatment, primary medical and dental care and a variety of transitional and permanent housing options.  They serve over 350 hot lunches every day of the year to the homeless and the working poor.

"We worked diligently to make quality sandwiches," said Connor Delepine, a sophomore baseball player.  "It's always good to do something for the community.  As a Division I athlete, it is important to show that we are part of the community around us.  It was a lot of fun to have athletes there from other teams helping the homeless."
