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: “Snap! Crackle! Pop!

These are arguably the three most familiar words in the English language. They were first heard in a radio jingle in 1932, four years after the cereal was introduced. They mimicked the sound the cereal made when doused with milk. In 1939, Snap! Crackle! and Pop! also began referring to the cereal’s three mascots. Last week for donating cereal.
