DMC Children's Hospital gathers over 450,000 servings of cereal for kids

DETROIT (WJBK) -

As DMC Children's Hospital's fourth annual cereal drive comes to an end, we're told over 450,000 servings of cereal have been collected.

That amount surpasses last year's total, and donations are still being accepted online through noon on Monday, June 10.

Since many kids get assistance in the form of breakfasts and lunches during the school year, the goal is to provide children with a consistent daily meal during the summer break.

We're told Gleaners will distribute the cereal to kids in Southeast Michigan through food pantries, churches, kids packs, food carts and schools that offer summer programs.

This effort is being led by the DMC Children's Hospital of Michigan Professional Nurse Council.
