3rd Annual Cereal Drive for The Pantry!
Because Breakfast Does Not Take The Summer off!
Pantry donations significantly drop in the summer and we need your help. During the month of June, we are focusing our efforts on one of the most needed items at The Pantry – cereal. Breakfast does not take the summer off and neither do we! Let’s come together for a common cause to end summer hunger. In 2016, we collected 2,000 boxes of cereal. This year, our goal is to collect 3,000 boxes of cereal by June 30. Every box counts!
We would like to encourage community groups, small groups, friends, parents and neighbors to get involved. Collecting donations is a fun and easy way to stay active during the summer, with the added bonus of helping those in need. Please share this information with anyone in your community you think may be interested in joining our 3rd Annual Pantry Cereal Drive!
Donations may be dropped off at Hamilton Mill UMC from 9:00am to 3:00pm Monday through Thursday or on Sunday mornings before and after worship services at 8am, 9:15am and 11:00am. You may also make a monetary donation online by clicking here.
While we are focusing on cereal during the month of June, please remember that we would love additional food donations as well. After all, one can not live on cereal alone. Our most needed items include: canned fruit, boxes of pasta, canned meats, canned pastas and soups with meats.
Thank you for your support! Together we can make a difference!
