Please Donate to the Summer Cereal Drive

Summers are tough on kids in families with economic stress. Schools are out, and so are the nutritional programs provided by the schools: Breakfast, free and reduced lunch, back pack programs for the weekend.

The Knights of Columbus in Loudoun County are trying to ease the burden on these families by sponsoring a Cereal for Summer Drive. They will be collecting cereal, cereal bars, granola bars, pudding paks, other non-perishable snacks, and juice boxes at churches throughout Loudoun County. Why cereal? It is easy to prepare, and can be done by children, it is nutritious, and can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

The Knights will then transport the donations to Catholic Charities for distribution. Catholic Charities will also supply milk for these families in need.

Please help Our Lady of Hope Council to its goal of 1,000 items donated!!!!

All items may be dropped off starting May 26, 2012 thru June 24, 2012 at:

Our Lady of Hope Catholic Church

“Then the righteous will answer him and say, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry… And he will say to them in reply, ‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.’”

Matthew 25
