In a previous post, I introduced you to Robin with The Kindness Project, a grassroots effort to combat childhood hunger here in central Phoenix. Thanks to help of the local media, and lots of tweeting, we had a great food drive to benefit them! Let’s start from the beginning.
First, the kids and I went shopping at Walmart to find some Post Cereal. The ”Bowls of Hope” campaign is an encouragement for people to purchase three boxes of Post Cereal - and keep two for themselves, and donate one to a local food bank or charity.
It’s kind of hard to tell, but Jeremiah loved walking around with the cereal (Great Grains) he chose to donate.
Another item that was high on Robin’s list of ‘needs’ were these noodles. At this price, they couldn’t be beat, so we picked up some to donate as well.
Both Robin and I had a chance to appear on 3TV’s Good Morning Arizona television show, you can see our interview here!
As you can imagine, it was quite nerve-racking to be on television!!
Guess what? Since the food drive was so successful, it will continue through the END OF JULY! That’s right, donate at the following places:
Tempe, at Apologia Church, which is located at the Gethsemane Lutheran Church, 1035 E Guadalupe Rd, Tempe. This is a church inside a church, so the hours you can drop off are: Tuesday 6pm-9pm, Thursday 7pm-9pm and Sunday 3:30-7pm.
PHOENIX: CO+HOOTS: 825 N 7th St, Phoenix. 10am-6pm, M-F.
Contact me at email@example.com if you have questions, want to participate, or if you put a bin up in your office and I’ll come pick it up!!
This food drive would not have been possible without the partnership of Post as well as Champions for Kids (also follow CFK on Twitter). If you love twitter lke I do, follow along with ALL the other great bloggers who participated by checking out the #PostCFK hashtag on twitter! Champions for Kids is partnering with large corporations to make HUGE differences in the lives of children around the country, and I am honored that I was able to participate in such a tangible manner!
