DENISON, Texas (KTEN) — What started as two friends making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for a few homeless kids has turned into so much more.

It all started with a little boy named Connor and his two brothers.

"They had a real desire to want better for themselves, " said Lana Dusek, who organized the Peanut Butter and Jesus campaign.  "When I asked, 'Do you want to go to school?' They said, 'Yes, I want to go to school so bad!' I said, 'Well, let's make that happen!' and we did."

While working with the family who were living at the Denison Inn, Dusek saw how many people really needed help there.

"The more that I've been interacting and been involved, the more I see that there's such a need... so, so great of a need," said PB&J volunteer Laura Copeland.

A lot of the people served by the organization don't have transportation, and have very few other ways to get food.

"A lot of people say, 'Well, why don't they go to the soup kitchen?' But that's way across town, and they would have to walk," Dusek said.

So now, Peanut Butter and Jesus brings meals right to their backyard three days a week.

"It impacts the ones that actually need it, so it's a blessing to them, and it's a blessing to us all," said Elvena Johnson, who is a meal recipient.

And every time they come back, Connor and his brothers are there to greet them with a smile.

"God just gave me a heart for kids, especially those who are underprivileged," Copeland said. "What some kids take for granted, these kids don't get to do."
