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: Brings out the Tiger in you…

Tony the Tiger may be the most famous breakfast cereal mascot of all time. When you hear this slogan, you know exactly who the tiger is and the product he promotes. Most people automatically hear the musical jingle in their head. It’s a triple whammy. You might say, It’s Great! Our ROAR campers would like to have a few more tigers in the sanctuary.
