ARKADELPHIA, Ark. (KTHV) -- THV 11 News was live in Arkadelphia Fri., June 13 for the latest stop for during THV Summer Cereal Drive!
THV's Tom Brannon was live at Brookshire's Food and Pharmacy on Pine Street during "THV 11 This Morning" taking your donations of cereal and money to help feed hungry Arkansas families.
In total, Friday's drive collected 1,619 boxes!
Did you know that one in five Arkansans don't know where they will find their next meal? Even worse, the rate for children and seniors is even higher.
For the last 13 years, you, THV11, and the Arkansas Foodbank - in partnership with local businesses, groups, and schools - have teamed up during the summer months to provide healthy breakfast options for children and families in central Arkansas who would otherwise go without the most important meal of the day - breakfast.
We are collecting cereal through June 27.
