10News WTSP, Feeding Tampa Bay, and local businesses including Bayview Pharmacy are teaming up to help feed needy families. As many as 250,000 children in our area suffer from hunger and the problem is especially critical during the summer months, because they are not getting meals at school.
How you can help!
Businesses, schools, churches, charitable groups, and individuals are participating by donating to Cereal for Summer. Stop by Bayview Pharmacy to make a donation to support children in our area who suffer from hunger.
What can I donate?
- Dry cereal – boxes or bags (Think Nutritious!)
- Cereal/Breakfast Bars
- Pop Tarts
- There will also be an opportunity to donate boxes of cereal online or to make monetary contributions.
When is the Cereal drive?
Cereal for Summer began on Monday, April 4 and concludes on Friday, May 6.
A final push for donations on May 6 will be at the 10News studios-11450 Gandy Boulevard, St. Petersburg. Their news anchors will receive donations from the public and participating groups. This would be a great day to have your donations or check presentation videotaped for our newscast and website!
