Young crusader’s birthday haul: PB&J for hungry children

When Lauren Gramlich turned 16 last year, she didn’t ask for jewelry or cash or gift cards. She wanted peanut butter. And jelly. Lots of jars of both. By the end of her party, she had quite a haul — 185 jars of the favorite staples of many kids. She donated all of it to City Union Mission in Kansas City to help provide sandwiches for people at the homeless shelter.
