Teacher’s Cereal Drive Increases Donations by 500%March 07, 2017
Every year, the Aurora Education Association-West hosts a cereal drive to benefit the pantry. This year, they decided to transition to a Food + Fund drive, allowing participants to donate boxes of cereal or make donations online. The results were staggering: 382 boxes of cereal were collected along with $1,544 in donations. Those donations will allow us to get 7,720 more boxes of cereal, for a grand total of 8,102 boxes. (That’s a 500% increase from last year’s cereal drive!) Cereal is one of our most popular items at the pantry – we can go through 1,600 boxes a week – so this cereal drive will have a massive and immediate impact. Thank you, AEA-W!
