Cereal drive brings in 2,400 boxes
The students of Triad Academy at Summit were the top collectors for Crisis Control Ministry’s “Wee Care! Children’s Cereal Drive.” The school brought in 331 boxes of cereal during the month of March, National Nutrition Month. The donated cereal went to Crisis Control’s client choice food pantry, which provides foods for many local families.
The Wee Care! drive began as a way to introduce children to philanthropy by encouraging them to donate something that most of them love: cereal. Students are also encouraged to read the labels on cereal boxes and how the labels can help them make wise food choices.
This year nearly 50 daycares, preschools and elementary schools throughout Forsyth County participated in the 10th annual Wee Care! and donated more than 2,400 boxes of cereal.
Crisis Control Ministry provided participating schools with curriculum booklets with activities on giving and sharing, as well as information on the Food Plate guide and nutrition. It also included easy and nutritious recipes for children to make.
Celebrating 40 years of service as Forsyth County’s largest emergency assistance provider with offices in Winston-Salem and Kernersville, Crisis Control Ministry is a four-star rated charity whose mission is to assist people in crisis to meet essential life needs and to become self-sufficient.
