Children’s Hospital of Michigan cares about kids and their families. Not only does the hospital provide world class care to patients, it also mobilizes its partners to help the community at large. This year, LittleGuide Detroit is joining the efforts and asking you to help us collect boxes for Children’s Hospital of Michigan’s annual Cereal Drive.
For a dozen years, Children’s Hospital of Michigan and its community partners have raised more than 11 million servings of cereal for kids in southeast Michigan who need food when school is out for the summer. The LittleGuide Detroit team wants to do what we can for local families and we’d love for you to help us fill a truck full of cereal boxes in support of this campaign.
In southeast Michigan, more than 305,000 children receive free or reduced-price meals in school. When school recesses for the summer, these children are vulnerable to undernourishment and hunger. Collected cereal will be donated to Gleaners Community Food Bank, who will distribute the cereal collection to children and their families over the summer.
