CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) -- Students at Conway High School kept a tradition alive with their annual cereal drive.
The group, called the Caring Cats of Conway West, turned the drive into a competition among all the schools in the district. THV 11's cameras were on hand at Jim Stone Elementary where Miss Moore's class got a pizza party for bringing in the most boxes of cereal for needy kids.
"It's just been really fun and really great to see the community get together to do something to help out the kids in the summer that don't have breakfast because a lot of times, the only meal they'll get will be at school. It's just been really cool to see that people care and kind of reaffirm faith in humanity almost. Just all the cereal has been coming in, and it's been awesome to watch," said Hannah Norton, who helped keep the cereal drive alive this year.
The club said they collected more than 5,000 boxes of cereal.
