Collecting Cereal – Sharing Center
We will be collecting cereal for the month of June for the Sharing Center. Our VBS campers from ROAR will partner with us to collect as many boxes of cereal that we can. Summer is a difficult time for some families because the children no longer get free or discounted lunches and breakfasts. Cereal is great for either meal. Watch the tower grow!
Trivia for the day: Who remembers which cereal was shot from canons? In 1904, Quaker introduced the cereal to the mass public by shooting Puffed Rice from cannons at the World’s Fair.
