Twin Cities’ cereal drive collects 455 boxes of cereal
Twin Cities Community Hospital employees contributed 455 boxes of cereal for the Healthy Over Hungry cereal drive to help provide children with breakfast during the summer months when they are unable to have one provided at school.
The effort was part of a national initiative by Tenet Healthcare, parent organization to Twin Cities. The program was started as a local initiative by Detroit Children’s Hospital, and this year spread to nearly all of Tenet’s 81 hospitals in 16 states.
All cereal that was collected is donated to local food banks. Combined with Sierra Vista’s contribution, nearly 1300 boxes of cereal were collected and donated to the Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County.
