The Ton in Ten provides Peanut Butter and Jelly to organizations in need of food, and the club is always looking for more places to donate the food. The Chili Challenge consists of both a silent and blind auction to raise money for local community organizations. Last year the club was able to donate blankets, clothing and $500 to AWAIC!
