Summer

June 2- 25, 2019

Every Tuesday and Thursday in June, ending on the 25th.

THV11 and the Arkansas Foodbank are celebrating the 20th year of the Summer Cereal Drive!

The Summer Cereal Drive provides non-perishable breakfast items that are both nutritious and kid-friendly for children and families in Central Arkansas who would otherwise go without the most important meal of the day – breakfast.

 

There are two ways to participate in Summer Cereal Drive. You can come to our community sites and drop off your donations or you can create a team! Get your friends, family or coworkers together and form a team to compete in our drive. You can collect cereal, breakfast items and money during the month of June and then bring it on the designated drop off day to see which team brings in the most for each division!

Visit the Summer Cereal Drive Page to learn more!
