Sierra Vista and Twin Cities Cereal Drive

About This Campaign

Sierra Vista & Twin Cities Cereal Drive
June 7 - 14, 2019

The annual Cereal Drive will help supply cereal to the Summer Breakfast Bags.  Many families rely on free and reduced breakfast and lunch to feed these meals to their children during the school week.  Summer can be a hardship when children are home from school and extra food needs to be purchased.  Summer Breakfast bags are there to help fill the gap.  

There will be a collection site at both Sierra Vista and Twin Cities Hospitals to drop off cereal donations.  The best type of cereal packaging is the cereal in bags instead of boxes.  Bagged cereal is less cumbersome and fits in the Breakfast Bag easier.  Please purchase cereal that is less than 5 grams of sugar.  Cheerio type cereals are the best! 

If you don't want to shop, no worries!  Just make a donation on this event page and your donation will go directly to the Sierra Vista & Twin Cities Cereal Drive Campaign.
